Ethan Wood’s full length tribute to the artist who first inspired him to make music, is a clear act of heartfelt artistic aspirations & genuine adoration. It makes for a unique, array of alternative takes on the Owl City songs.
Each time you press play, the experience is slightly different. The soundscape involves you in the moment, so whatever your mood – this is what the music reflects or enhances or helps with.
A sure-fire contender for the rock playlist. The freshness gives you something new to embrace, the familiarity arouses a sense of nostalgia – both of which work beautifully together.
There’s an inspiring sense of freedom that occasionally comes through with independent music releases, usually it’s when the artist has written & composed in a way that is, in itself, free from expectations or limits. This is the perfect example.
This approach to musical expression is loaded with individuality – the Nimbus sound quite swiftly settles in as its own thing.
Far from what’s generally incorporated in modern music. There’s a beautiful touch of originality & all the while you enjoy the music for the escapism it is.
The rhythm & ongoing melody surround you quite hypnotically, closing you off to the noise of the outside world, making the experience about the here & now.
There’s far more involved here than a characterful presentation & style. The meanings run deep, the songs hit like reality knocking creatively at the door.
Endearingly delicate & real – the lyrical honesty, the vulnerability in the voice, the organic softness of the surrounding, supporting instrumentation.
You can easily enjoy the musicianship & movement throughout, but if you choose to – you can take on the additional blessing of these unpredictable concepts.
Forever maintaining an element of mystery & intrigue. His approach to creative expression is compelling – familiar in some ways, unheard of in others.
Showcasing immense versatility & uniquely inspired creativity that strikes all at once as professional, deeply soulful, and forever unpredictable.
