Discovery: Rick Sorkin

Sandstorm is the latest release from singer-songwriter Rick Sorkin, with the track featuring a dark melody that dances nicely around Sorkin’s melancholic lyrics.

By Jane Howkins

The verses are a much different beast to the chorus of the song, alternating between low notes on the former, and a much brighter sound on the latter, almost creating a crescendo effect along the way. The instrumentation is also suitably layered, with piano trickles mixing well with guitar strums and drum flourishes.
