A new release from Alexander Nantschev brings together an alluring and inspiring songwriting dynamic with lush instrumentation to deliver something that feels personal and cinematic at the same time while keeping a certain air of mystery alive throughout the track's course.
"The Dynamics" has layers that can be peeled back especially lyrically, and the music follows suit as the song grows in intensity the longer you listen to it but with this, you also get that big and almost theatrical soundscape that lets you get wrapped up in everything.
This song has a certain level of escapism to it so that you're able to step into a different world for a little bit and songs like this, have a tendency to make you really think especially if you pay attention to the lyrical content.
This track lyrically blends and approach that takes metaphor, and straightforward styles and puts them in a place where each line can have not just one meaning but a few of them.
So, when I say the song makes you think, I mean it and with that I will also say this, listening to this track more than once is definitely the way to go because there are all kinds of hidden elements in the song that you can pick up on the second time around.
Like I said, there are a lot of layers that can be peeled back with this one and I think that's part of what makes it so special.
There's a certain subtle darkness and edge to this song as well and I think that comes from its honesty and its actual persona and character because the song does indeed deliver a lot of that.
Listening to this track is almost like reading a chapter in a good book and when it's done you go back to the beginning and read it again just so you can be sure you didn't miss anything the first time around.
The music video that accompanies the single is a big part of the vibe that this single put out and when you put the two together, they're two halves that become a hole.
This speaks volumes for Alexander's format for creation and being able to build visuals that line up with the audio so well.
This was an outstanding track that has a way of leaving you in awe at certain times because when it's over you have to reacclimate yourself back to reality again.
Watching the video is like watching a David Lynch movie and there are elements that are off-putting for certain people but if you pay attention, it makes sense in its own right.
Personally, I really enjoyed the combination of natural and digital instrumentation creating a textural soundscape that you can swim through.
This was beautifully done and performed with a certain gracefulness that is a rarity in our day and age.
We would definitely give this an 8 out of 10 to say the least and suggest that you take a listen to it so that you can have a piece of music that you need to wrap your head around.
It feels good to have that.
