Songs. Are as important as instrumentation (I think). Either way this is most beautifully, rewardingly both. The voice here sounds and, more significantly, feels every bit as breathily emotive as it is possible to be. Each note and resonance captures a moment in time and in particular at the edges of existence. Not quite so sweet. Deliciously bitter. The original version has pounding Toms beat out a heavy-duty rhythm as nervy synth lines set about creating their own atmospheres. However, it’s Gel Abril’s stunning remix that really captures and projects the songs essence for me with brutal drums offsetting the human touch and haunting synthesizers perfectly. It’s All Around You, provides the second track and again raises the emotional temperature in amongst an array of grainy, probing drums amid life-affirming sounds rather exquisitely.
