There is musical magic being made in San Francisco and it’s being created by an amazing new group going by the name CATHEDRALS. The talented duo unveiled their first single “Unbound” yesterday and it didn’t take me long to realize it is one of the most impressive debuts I have heard all year. I love how the song seems to tell me a deeply personal story in small bits and pieces, that meticulously unravels and slowly unwinds all around me. Along the way, my ears are massaged with beautiful layers of sound and varying bursts of textures that send tingles down my spine without any warning. From the somewhat frantic opening guitar strums and steadying back beat to the absolutely gorgeous and sometimes harmonized vocals, I can feel every change in emotion as if I am reliving someone’s memories firsthand. “Unbound” is an incredible listening experience full of highs and lows, of longing and forgiveness, and of vulnerability and strength. And just like watching the great magicians of generations past, their illusions allow me to hear and see what I let myself see!
CATHEDRALS is making quite a first impression with their first offering and it won’t be long before their music is spreading like wildfire. I just hope they haven’t used their best trick at the beginning of their show!
