The performance feels like a race down a highway, almost like Race to Neptune know they have the listener by the ears & can take you past your comfort zone. Abandon fashion, forget reservations & dance to this amazing EP while your brain races to the stars.
It’s interesting to hear the two artists – who seem so very different from one another – access the same moment of artistry. This is creativity at its most freely meandering & thoughtful.
The very concept of a sacrament seems a strange one to connect with this gathering of tracks. Its intriguing & there’s undoubtedly something eerily appealing about it all – perhaps it’s the uncomfortable process of some sort of musical baptism or cleansing.
Keeping the authentic reggae vibes alive & shining brightly, Jah Cure offers the genuine sound & vibe of the genre alongside of heartfelt songwriting & a distinctive, passionate performance. A beautiful track, easily memorable & totally uplifting.
Brother Jon Band undoubtedly have that brightness & level of unified skill to make your night out one to remember, On top of this though, they put a little character into their songwriting, simple but effective choices both lyrically & melodically have the effect of making you really want to take home an album.
The craftsmanship is where the strength lies, this is a piece of audio to be experienced – the movement carries you along, the ideas provoke deep thought, and all in all you get that authentic, alternative trip-hop edge that is all too absent from mainstream music of late.
This music can have a profound & awakening effect on its audience, if they let it. There’s something mildly addictive about the way it makes you feel. It’s beautifully haunting, dark yet comforting – the perfect fusion of elements to intrigue & entertain a busy, modern-day mind.
Sometimes memory can feel like a curse, and perhaps it is, but it’s an all too human curse & something of a supernatural blessing. Accepting loss or failure does not mean forgetting it happened, because remembering displays the deepest well of strength.
The song has a simple composition. It uses electric guitar, bass & drums in a solid combination that promises you a good time, and delivers. The bass links the play of the drums & the grungy electric guitar with a liquid warmth that is also reminiscent of a quality found in Fitzgerald’s voice.
The synth-driven melody glides through shimmering snares & cymbals to create a lucid, poly-rhythmic path of movement – a sequence that compels one to dance. It’s as if the song leaves you wandering around in the dark parts of your mind.
Dreams Of Freedom represent Irish pride in the most uplifting & compelling way. The stories are truthful & loaded with Irish history & unforgettable strength. An absolute must-hear.
These songs that make up the collection are beautifully well produced & also hit in the way that any superb & memorable song should. There’s plenty more to appreciate on top of this as the project plays out.
