Golden Grey – [2016] Awaken the Wolf

Glitch-craft ambient. Beautiful electro sound, aiming at the space between C148’s Minecraft and soft, minimal synth quirkiness.

More than a year after I received this public review suggestion on my blog’s About page, I finally got into the right mood for reviewing this quiet gem. If you search for uplifting power pop music, stop right here! If you seek a calm and subtle delight, read on.

Skyward follows C148’s example to demonstrate how much you can achieve with a minimal chord progression, very slow build-up of instrumentation and a meditative, repetitive rhythm. Great for washing off a busy day!

Don’t Stop Running is this album’s equivalent of a single: most approachable, (almost) radio-compatible structure and sound texture. Despite that, it stays true to the album’s compositional style: minimal chord progression and a simple, repetitive rhythm to induce that trance feeling. Sweet!
