Just as autumn begins to make its inevitable march into our lives once again, one of my favourite artists returns to the blog with an ode to summer. Gifts From Crows is the musical project of Richard Laurence and has appeared on our blog many times. His latest is called The Unimaginable Brightness of Summer.
By Graeme Smith
Delicate and pensive, the piece starts ambient and features a slow build of elements. Particularly exciting was the vocalisations, an instrument I’ve not heard in Richard’s music before but has been something of a forte for him in the past. Present as always is the delicate and textured melody which never grows old.
The Unimaginable Brightness of Summer is the first release from Richard’s forthcoming album Stories in Slow Light. You can check out the video for it below.
