Black Cloud by Tess Posner lifts the veil of pain that haunts our reality and gently guides us back to reality. The singer taps into the most guttural part of her to have us grippedwith every note. The song masterfully blends alternative and pop, creating a sound that is both unique and relatable.
Posner’s vocals are the standout features of the track. She is what I can only describe as the Shakira of the emo-alt-folk world. Tess delivers each line with raw emotions, vulnerability and charisma. She is the beacon that tolls the bell of reality for most people dealing with hardships at the moment. She tells us that if we are facing trouble, the only way is through the storm to get this solution. The simmering instrumental act as the magic carpet that takes us on the journey to self-discovery. The track is arranged cohesively production wise and is finished off with top-notch detail. Everything in the song aids in pushing Tess’s vocals forward, propelling her to new heights.
A film that has a similar quality of saviour and companionship is Maleficent. The film is one of the best cinemas in the Disney realm. Black Cloud would be the perfect song for Maleficent, aiding to her character development so much more. .
