A Delightful New Pop Sound From Skycabin
In a new release from Skycabin, we get a distinguished but atmospheric and swirling smooth set of textures that come together in a flow to create a soundscape that lets you get washed away with it all. And it feels great.
"Insidia" bears a wondrous fantasy aspect and formula for a subtle pop feel that touches on a dream-esque tonality and lets you float along as the music and sounds swim around in the air that surrounds you.
This was a beautiful and cinematic yet somewhat calming single and it sneaks in this sort of underground '90s alt pop influence at times. This feeling lurks just beneath the surface but it's there.
You get wonderfully performed melodic vocals that come across alluring and silky while swelling synths and pads bear a little edginess underneath.
The beat itself is what at times, can give it this '90s pop feel but it works like a charm.
This song was meant to whisk you away to a different place altogether and it definitely accomplishes just that.
You do indeed get to float face up staring at the stars in the night sky. It lets you ponder, it lets you wonder, and it lets memories pop into your head.
This is also where that cinematic aspect takes place. The sounds used on this track are able to portray a somewhat vivid picture and that picture is up to you.
It's best explained by thinking about it as reading a good book. The Sounds and music all describe something to you in a way but it's still up to you to form that picture in your head. And everyone's is a little bit different.
The singing and production style of the track melt together nearly perfectly and showcase this duo's ability to deliver a pop song that creeps outside the box in the best ways possible.
There is much character and the entire thing has some memorable hooks both musically and vocally that have a way of sticking with you for the rest of the day.
This was a really cool track in the sense that it gives you that fantastic feeling. So much so that once it's over, you have to sort of replant yourself back in reality.
And it's absolutely terrific to have songs that take you that far from reality. Like a good book, I think that's what some songs are for and this one is a perfect example of that.
