The simplicity of the piece is beautiful, it works for you without drawing too much focus to the artists. Other than the clear skill that’s gone into crafting it, the experience isn’t about anyone but you. It’s music for the music fan, and it works gorgeously in this way.
The set-up is superb, the music and the vocals are so united that it feels like a work of art, and genuine too. You can feel the emotion and the difficulty as the performance pours through.
There are bars here, clever lines and soulful deliveries, as well as a clear connection to the art form and to this musical soundscape. The perfect kind of vibe to see you through the remaining quarter of 2018.
With a melodic strength and synth-driven ambiance not unlike Years & Years, but the heartfelt delicacy of a more personal singer-songwriter approach, Friends introduces Lorenzo Doryon’s sound and creative style in a memorable way.
It’s a relationship song with a twist, and the switch from the melancholy verses to the hopeful hook – it’s not too bad – makes for something that resolves in a satisfying way.
The whole thing provokes thought and invites you to consider yourself and your world a little more closely. The song itself is a beautiful piece of writing and performance, more than fit to accompany that process.
You grow to understand the whole thing more and more as it plays out, and both verses add something valuable to the underling vibe and sentiment of the track.
The complexity of the soundscapes is mesmerising, and yet the smoothness or unity of everything interconnected within is stunning. There’s excitement and calm at work simultaneously.
The subject matter here is thoughtful, intelligent, reflective in a deep way and inspiring to listen to. There’s something real being pondered throughout, the heavier content intertwined with that which is lighter and more laid back.
There’s a speech at the heart of it – a graduation style reminder of the depths of the world and our roles within it. In addition, the music has a certain hypnotic softness that fills the room in a soothing way.
The story is told, the band bring back the effort and detail of the eighties in a captivating way, and the song ignites a new and bright light within the music world.
This album presents audiences with hit after hit after indie anthem, loaded with equal parts delicacy and weight, weaving around you colourful riffs and melodies and lyrical concepts, all honest and genuine sounding.
