Some musicians can change the composition of the surrounding atmosphere. StarAV can morph it to form melodies that captivate and create a collage of sound. Collaborating with Raymond Yan, Preston Woolsey and Luna Harley for this one, this track might be the light you need for the weekend. This single is called Halo.
StarAV created quite the channels of magic with his 2021 EP, The End. Featuring music that tears the reality of fabric to question it, a lot is to do with immersive sound experiences. In a time when it seems like innovation is restricted because everything is visible, StarAV sifts through the details. This particular track starts out with a gorgeous instrumental that absorbs you. The vocals build off the gentle instrumentals, organically creating a dominion of an audio palette.
The high notes are complemented with detailed layering, something you have to really dial into to listen to. The synth flows melt into each other to create a resounding, complex web. As you’re starstruck with what the sounds do, the song seems to etch itself in your soul. The harmonics create the kind of flavour that comes from a cultural cross-section unlike any other. It is an incredible change of paces and styles.
The density of a track like this would be amazing in shows like Euphoria, where there are visual explorations in scenes. Another place it would fit in is Paper Towns, the adaptation of the John Greene book. There is some incredible detail in this work, so don’t forget to follow the featured artists in this song for some incredible, soul-searching music!
