Video: Gifts From Crows – In The Scrying Pool

In The Scrying Pool is the third track we’ve shared from Gifts From Crows (real name Richard Laurence formerly of Sea Horses) debut album Holding A Thought Forever.

By Graeme Smith

It has a similarly experimental feel as But When You Sleep... and As Nature Returns. A largely improvised piece, it starts quiet, introspective and reflective. The piano melody meanders through different tempos while strings follow in its wake. A sudden burst of energy in the keys feel waterfall-like, a sudden churn of potential energy spilling to the end.

In The Scrying Pool is another great offering from this seasoned musician forging a new path in music. You can check out the darkly gothic accompanying video below.
