New Music: Eric Heitmann feat. Elvya – Hikan

American pianist and composer Eric Heitmann returns with an awesome new tune, also featuring ethereal vocalist Elvya.

By Jane Howkins

Hikan sounds beautiful from the very start, opening with a slow piano melody, as Elvya’s vocals appear. Despite having elements of the classical genre, there’s also something very folksy about Hikan, appealing across the board. A luscious array of strings are added into the mix, creating a gorgeous soundscape that adds a cinematic character to the music. However, the focal point remains on the vocals, which really soar here – the backing vocals also add a nice touch, drifting along in a mystical way. This is a must listen song!
