Raymond Revel - Fantasy - Stereo Stickman

Raymond Revel Fantasy


Raymond Revel stands tall on the strength of compelling, authentic and poetic songwriting with this release. The opening words alone shine with genuine heart and soul amidst a purely acoustic guitar-led backdrop…

What have I built? A kingdom with such insecurity…

As the song progresses, the details unfold subtly but surely, laying bare a tale of melancholy following elation and love. Revel’s poetry meets with a certain intimacy, a pure and emotive addressing of a significant other, which has the effect of feeling as if this was written solely for one person, and we are just collateral beneficiaries. This gives a sort of fly on the wall sense of realness; it makes the song more captivating.

What’s beautiful about Fantasy is how delicately familiar it is, how warming the sound yet how loaded with longing and uncertainty the lyrics are – and indeed Revel’s own nearly whispered leading voice. The completed piece manages to be exclusive and welcoming all at once – these personal references are actually decidedly vague; enough so to be made your own as you listen through. Thus is the calling card of a powerful song.

Lovely. Truthful, thoughtful songwriting, and a skillful, softly passionate performance.
