Music makes you the perfect traveler, with the help of a button, you can surround yourself with water. Kepa Lehtinen gives a new meaning to swift and fluid with his latest release- Suru. It’s fantastic, the imagery and feeling that a piece of music leaves behind in your body. Everything about this track is painfully beautiful.
The track is wordless and yet it says so much. We begin soft and smooth with the piano. It is as if the moon has just risen and welcomes the gentle ache within our souls. The bass from the theremin adds a whole lot of depth to the track. There is a connection that the song establishes with the listeners right from the start. So much so that it feels more and more like a personal rendition as the song progresses. Words might not be enough to convey how moving the track is, it is as though the keys and the strings have become wrap themselves around the listener’s diaphragm and have full control of your breath.
The production on the track is nothing but perfect, every note is held for just the right amount of time is a testament to their craftsmanship. A series that has dedicated the same level of craftsmanship in every aspect is The Haunting of Bly Manor. The Haunting Of Hill House series is one of the perfect horror dramas out there. Suru would be incredibly wonderful in the second season as the whole season revolves around love, longing and letting go. Kepa Lehtinen has weaved this beautiful tapestry of sonic beats that it both warms us and leaves us with a sense of void. I urge you to listen to this and follow the links above to give more of his work a good listen.
