The Ambient And Lush Sounds Of Scapeghosts
A brand new full album release from Scapeghosts keeps you adrift in an ambient and cinematic soundscape that touches on singer-songwriter and comes through lush with vivid textures and experimental sounds.
The songs on the Alwaysland album are both haunting and warming, youthful and dreamy, and all have the ability to wash you away into her world.
There is a tonality of the songs that comes from real places and emotional drive at times and there is an array of beats and sounds that fill the atmosphere of these songs.
Instrumentation that ranges from natural to digital and back again all come together to create something that feels personal and vocals float in the ether of the tracks .
The record is a different kind of beautiful but beautiful it is.
There are piano based ballads laced with distanced synths that make sounds that can crawl under your skin in all the best ways.
This album can make you think, remember, and feel. This is what an album like this is really about. Expression, and making something that reaches out in a unique way.
Synth pads sway and swell, vocals layer and bounce off of each other, and you become engulfed in the whole thing.
You can hear how in love with her craft the artist really is as you let the songs flow around you and fill the air with color.
When the album ends, you find yourself needing to shake it off like you've just woken up from a dream.
You are fulfilled and satiated in a way and it's pretty awesome.
It's actually great to have an album that makes an experience for the listener and all without even trying to do exactly that.
I'll likely go back to Alwaysland again soon. So should you.
