One of indie music’s hardest working corners of creativity delivers another deep-dive into the workings of the mind – The Vanishing Kingdom is an absolute journey, in both style and story, and showcases 3mind Blight at the very top of his game.
Artistically incorporating the effective power of juxtaposition, The Vanishing Kingdom promises an audio experience of stylistic and emotive appeal united.
From delicate, finger-style beginnings, the story and the melody reach out – that unmistakable voice, the revealing contemplations regarding the self. Soon enough though, the true structure of the track displays itself, and a new layer to the story surfaces.
Evolving into realms of metal and progressive rock intermittently, The Vanishing Kingdom features a stunning guitar solo at the mid-section – unexpectedly breaking the tension and laying bare one of the most original and likeable scores of recent times.
Then things start again, the build from softness to the sheer weight and roar of metal, the 3mind Blight voice highlighting an impeccable ability to carry the presence and emotion of both styles.
Intriguing as ever, detailed during the verses yet mysterious and striking for the hypnotic repeat of one of the more memorable lines from his career to date – the new single emphasises yet again the strength and integrity of the 3mind Blight voice.
“Watch as he washes away.”
