serpentwithfeet, alias of Josiah Wise, is set to take the discerning music fan’s world by veritable cyclone. Electronic gospel fused with dark atmospheric strings and layered vocals meld into a beautiful listening experience.
Huge swells of building tension are scattered throughout the almost seven minute track, propping up the vulnerable vocals and evoking a dangerously blissful operatic love letter to the universe.
Slow, driving hand claps interrupted by heavenly harp and repetitions of “The darkness of the leaves has come. Forgiveness has not…” hint at a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland forged by small-mindedness. A true parallel of a broken relationship with the broken world pervading in today’s climate of unrest.
