And his song ‘Halo Effect’ is proof of that. With light guitar sounds, a soft beat, and power vocals, he creates an atmospheric tune that is emphasized by the drastic quickening of the drums. If this was the only song he put out, it would be enough to show that he’s a songwriter with a passion for words and a musician with a passion for melody.
I also really enjoyed ‘Red Bridge’, an acoustic song that displays his vocal range and puts a signature on his styling; words often repeated (and enamored into your brain), he has perfect control over pitch and voice; ultimately smooth and soothing, the occasional prickling huskiness gives it a bit of fire.
His track ‘UFO’ is a seesaw teetering from brunt guitar riffs with unforgiving bass and smashing drums, to gentle strums. The introduction is beautiful. The layering produces a stunningly calm mood with caressing guitars that are somewhat reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s ‘Marooned’.
It makes the switch to the harsher state and again goes back and forth, before bringing the bridge that made me want to tell you readers about him. The intensity of this section, accompanied by the words, “Come on down, without a sound,” is impossible to understand without listening to it. So here it is!
He possesses a diversity that stirs within you a million different feelings: sorrow, anguish, love, yearning…
And then there is the guitar solo with Led Zeppelin-tinged licks that provide an eclectic development of sound throughout the entire song.
The title seems fitting; the music and structure are almost alien. And for that reason, you DON’T want to miss out!
