Shimmering guitars and percussive pulsing lend a climatic, anticipatory feeling initially, the soaring vocals around the 45-second mark invigorating into the "small worlds," refrain. The expressive vocal work around 02:50 is particularly striking, the wordless expression into the "We are," anthemic stirring leaving a memorable impression. The subsequent bird-chirping provides a lush effect, contrasting nicely amidst the spacious soundscape and vocal power. Another successful, creative production with vocal power and an interesting, natural-shifting soundscape. Please do send upon release to my email. Thanks again! -Mike
Ghostly vocals and a psychedelic sitar lead craft an intriguing introduction, propelled shortly thereafter by buzzing synths and guitar fragments -- aesthetically a bit reminiscent of Kate Bush. I'm enjoying the quick rise from ghostly beginnings into a melodic, more accessible sound. The vocals exude a free-flowing quality, working excellently, especially at points like the two-minute mark, seamlessly alternating between suave and expressive tones (latter "desert of dreams," in particular playing nicely). Sitar-y re-emergence and wordless vocal passion, approaching the three-minute mark, helps drive into a satisfying conclusion. "Spirit" consumes with a creative, melodic sound. I'm happy to share upon release. Please send the public link to firstname.lastname@example.org upon release, and also feel free to inquire about my PR services' rates, success stories, and strategy. Thanks for sending! -Mike
