Adopting a wholly immersive approach to song-writing with this metaphorical look at surfing and its similarities to life itself – Kevin Denis creates a blissfully ambient journey for this brand new single.
Featuring a mighty pop-rock set-up, multi-layered yet delicate in production so as to achieve a certain sense of calm, Divination proves a cinematic soundscape ready and waiting to embrace and uplift listeners.
From simple beginnings, the track gathers increasing momentum as it progresses from softness and calm to high energy and excitement – not unlike the very process of surfing; the quiet waiting, the build up, the sudden euphoria.
Throughout its post-four-minute lifespan, Divination brings in multiple moments of change and subtle redirection – an appropriately wave-like level of ups and downs, from calmness to chaos, the dreamland to the peak of reality. At the same time, the musicianship and clear attention to detail appear suggestive of an artist at the top of his game. There are even more than a few character traits and riffs that make the whole thing easily recognisable.
Really beautifully crafted. Listen loud.
