I can always recognize a great piece of music because it makes me feel something. It’s the same as watching a suspenseful movie where I get caught up in the storyline and forget about everything else in the world for a few hours. Listening to true musical artistry is more than just about moving to a catchy rhythm, singing along with a memorable chorus or deciphering thought-provoking lyrics. It’s about being able to absorb bits and pieces of these elements and combining them into something personally meaningful without even realizing it. It feels real and easy to relate to. And after that last note ends, immediately knowing I want to experience the song all over again. “Ancient Light” by London musician ALLMAN BROWN does just that. Amidst lonely instrumental taps and solemnly powerful vocals, I can almost hear the song getting brighter with each second that goes by. Building rapidly in emotion and crackling intensity until a beautiful explosion of heart wringing passion and electronically infused energy wrap its strong yet ethereal arms completely around me. As if I am right in that moment fighting with every ounce of strength left in me for what I might lose. “Ancient Light” definitely deserves it’s rightful place on my music gallery wall. And the song warrants being on everyone else’s too! ALLMAN BROWN drops “Ancient Light” June 16th on Akira Records!
