Ambient, potent, emotive. All these words and more can be used to describe ‘Blue’. From the order of the tracks to every note within, it is an experiential collection of digital music that has no predictable formula or pattern. Yet, every track seems intuitive, taking the mind away, seeming familiar and new all at once.
‘Aurora’, the flagship of the album, immerses us into an immediate state of calm excitement, humming away with increasingly flavorful melodies as the song progresses. It is followed by ‘Epic Memory’, an upbeat but somber song – the only track on the album with lyrics – one that can be used to relax or as a companion on a run, depending on the mood.
‘Gentle Insomniac’, ‘Maze of Mind’, ‘Melanc’, ‘Modus’ – gorgeous, melodious tracks, oozing with different moods, cushioning our heads in a meditative lull.
‘Running Home’ and ‘Waverly Wind’, both strong, upbeat, and charismatic tracks will have your feet tapping and head bopping. Atypical for the genre, ‘Waverly Wind’ follows no specific pattern and climaxes in a perfectly fitting yet overwhelming manner.
Finally, the two darker tracks, ‘Variance’ and ‘The Eye of the Storm’. ‘Variance’, a dark, forced calm for the improbable outcomes, and ‘The Eye of the Storm’ – some calm deadness that shadows something equally explosive.
