Fraktal are a Swiss jazz collective whose new live performance video Only Human is a masterpiece of subtlety and explosiveness.
By Graeme Smith
Only Human combines classical instruments with electric guitar and drums to create a timeless modern style. Angelic vocals float in a quiet and introspective intro and build into a explosion of drums. Things build at a relaxed pace over eight whole minutes of unfolding musical narrative that utterly draws you in.
The simple video shows the arrangement coming together in the studio and adds an extra layer to the story. You can check it out below.
