Sarantos is a… and I quote… “DIY international award-winning solo music artist, top 5 iTunes UK charting singer songwriter, #1 iTunes South Africa charting folk and country artist, proud nerd, multi-instrumentalist, book author, comic book nut, radio show host, poet and part time spy!”
Oh…and he’s also an “alien who landed here to infect the human race and spread the disease of music!”
Ok, so he’s probably not an alien but he is an incredibly good musician and spreading the disease of music is ALWAYS a good thing in my opinion.
With soft, melodic, gentle vocals he is back up by multi-layering and this gives the track a haunting, poignant vibe that is full of emotion. He combines the use of clear, singing vocals with an almost rap/talking style that is really effective, almost as if he is having a conversation with himself.
The soft drumming is evident in the background and keeps the timing of the track perfectly. The guitar work and percussion side of things are not too over the top as, in my opinion, the lyrics and vocals on the track are the main focus point.
This is an indie /alternative rock track with a little bit of a difference and the classic 80’s/90’s sound has been given a modern twist.
I really liked this track. Its soft and mellow yet with a rawness to it that really gets you in the gut.
