Saol Álainn - Nostroke
The debut track for LA-based Saol Álainn is a promising one. The glitchy and often unpredictable waves of sound (notice the rewound piano, probably taken from the original demo, thanks Earmilk for digging that bit of info up) suggests that this mystery talent has a wealth of experience behind him, either that or he is a musical prodigy. If this alternative style then the lamenting lyrics surely will - ”I’m awake and I think about the joy of another day, don’t lock me away”. With carefully crafted and intelligent peices of music like this in the world, it really is a “beautiful life” as this artist’s Gaelic name proudly boasts.
