Sublime guitar-work pairs the acoustic and electronic realms to lead us into this thoughtful and poetic soft-rock anthem from Eonian.
A heartfelt and emotive single from the outset, All Around features a reverb-soaked vocal lead and a melody that quickly feels passionate and powerful as it rises up. The performance and production alike work hard to invite a sense of unity within the moment – the kind of build-up that begs for audience participation. And before you know it, that progression has hit the satisfying resolve and repeat of the title and hook concept.
Always returning to the acoustic softness and soulful riffs of its intro, All Around makes its way through almost four and a half minutes of music and story-telling – forever maintaining a sense of relevance to its own tale of uncertainty and inspiration, and always consistently enveloping and involving the audience in this rising level of anticipation and heart.
Where the verses have an alternative, perhaps progressive rock tint, the hook feels far more mainstream pop-rock – injecting a memorable moment that leaves its brightness and tune lingering long after the music has stopped. Beautifully crafted.
