Pretty cool track with some gorgeous imagery, those landscapes were great eye candy to an already diverse hypnotic electronic soundtrack. There's a lot of different sounds that make this track both interesting and unusual, particularly the synths after the avalanche scenes. The music syncs well with the lightning also. The scenes near the end were particularly eye catching by how unusual and almost alien they seemed.
Some of the backing instruments sound a little too loud during the intro, but aside from that, the song is interesting and sort of unusual. It structurally sounds different from a lot of songs, though that could be more because of the vocals and use of synth sounds. This track does make me want to hear more!
This track has a very otherworldly quality and while very electronic and synth-sounding, definitely flows very naturally and goes well with the video - which is very cool also. Well done track and video - it does a great job of making you feel like you're entering new and unusual worlds.
Both songs have a very quaint folksy feel to them, and remind me a little of Belle & Sebastian and similar indie pop bands (especially the first song). The instruments blend well together and the songs are very distinctive sounding. The lyrics seem to tell some interesting stories, which also helps these songs seem more interesting. The more I listen to these songs, the more I like them - so I think they could definitely be popular with college rock/indie pop fans.
Great song and video, starts off well with a nice blend of instruments and the vocals mix well with them. The video is very colorful and keeps you watching without distracting too much from the song. I enjoyed the sound and lyrics of the song, I'd love to hear more!
I enjoyed it a lot, the intro is very different from the rest of the song which isn't a bad thing. I find the progression to be very interesting and gradual. I'd describe the sound as indie synth pop, which is probably one of my favorites. It reminds me of bands like the Legends from Sweden and similar artists on Labrador Records, which might be a good place to start asking about labels. I found the production to be pretty good, I don't really any suggestions on changing it. Thanks for sharing with me, I will definitely continue listening!
Interesting video that for some reason reminded me of Scientology ads, but also maybe Tron. The music wasn't bad, but the track was very brief and ended rather abruptly. Appropriate for the digital age, it seems to symbolize some sort of fusion.
Dark and heavy sounding, I liked it for the most part considering it's not a style of music I usually like. The industrial sounding opening is an interesting contrast to the vocal like synth and drum sounds alternating with the heavier parts and overall provides a menacingly dark sounding atmosphere.
Hard to tell if this is a whole track by the length of it, but it seems to have a kind of mystical sounding background music (and vocals) with a trance-like rap that ends abruptly. Maybe the vocals are not clear since I had some trouble making out the words after multiple listens. Overall, not bad - I think it just ends too suddenly.
This is a good motivational song, I like the mix of instruments and the gradual speed increase of beats as it moves on. Synths are always good and this one uses them well. I don't usually like long songs, but I actually think this is one that I'd want to hear more of. It has a lot going for it.
There's some interesting parts of this track, some of the instrumental breaks and vocal sounds are really nice - though it does overall lend more to being background music. It is very relaxing and sensual sounding, reminds me of Chillout Electronica compilations. It would probably fit in to a soundtrack well.
It has an interesting backbeat, though it doesn't quite mix well with the vocals. It's a very downtempo sounding during the majority track, so maybe it isn't focused on vocals. I like the instrumental break at the 3 minute mark, though it does kind of come out of nowhere.
A really beautiful and moving composition. I wouldn't change a thing. Reading the story behind it makes it even better, I can't really add much other than it seems to accomplish its goal of encouraging those who need it to battle their obstacles. Excellent work!
For some reason, this song seems very familiar. It's very dreamlike and escapist in sound. Eventually it did end up sounding more like background music, but I think it's still appealing in that way. It gives the feeling of being on some sort of island getaway, though it lyrically seems to be about feeling at home with a loved one. Very nice vocals too!
This song has kind of a raw psych rock sound that sounds like it's from a different time. I like the very distinct electronic sounds that remind me of old space shows from the 60's. The more I listen to it, the more I like it!
I kind of like this cover more than the original song, though I don't really care much for the original. The video is sort of kitschy and cheesy, though sort of fitting for the track. The brass instruments were a nice addition. I think the old 70's style costumes and decor were probably the most amusing thing about this video.
It's a very strong track with an uplifting sound. The visuals that accompany the song are a good match to it. The vocals and lyrics are very powerful and it has a pretty nice beat once it builds up to the main verse of the song. It would be great on a soundtrack.
This has a very warm, familiar post punk sound with the synths and instrumentation, lyrics, and vocals. This track has a slower beat and pace throughout, which seems to keep it from sounding too tied to any specific time. It reminds me of some new wave era bands (one I was just listening to called The Wild Swans). There are probably others, but that's the one that first came to mind. Anyways, I really like the song and look forward to hearing more!
Interesting use of different instruments, it has a very worldly sound that could be from many places without sounding too much like a specific one. The different vocals are a nice contrast. The video itself has some jarring imagery, though overall has a vintage feel that is strangely familiar.
I like the song itself and the lyrics, though I think the opening is very different from what the song ends up sounding like. It actually kind of reminds me of a lot of music from the modern rock songs of the 90's. The video is interesting, it reminds me of early computer animation. It's kind of retro and modern all at once.
