Single Review: Metamorph - Dream Curve


Something a little different this time, delve into the world of nature and witchery with the single 'Dream Curve'. The concept is really interesting and shines some hope on the difficult world we find ourselves in as you can read in the bio below..

 

“With her dramatic soprano voice, enchanting stage presence, and marvellous flute solo, Margot Day’s music with Metamorph is an illuminating force...her new single with Metamorph inspires us to imagine a better future”. – Synthbeat.com


Our lives are on a new dream curve. We are all going through the darkness of grief. Bravely we traverse today's shifting cataclysm. Would you use this portal of change to dream a brighter future for yourself and our planet? We are the dream weavers, and we are interwoven. Together we embrace the unknown on our new dream curve.


"Inspired by nature I am writing and recording alone in the jungle. I send the songs into the ether via the web to Producer Erik Gustafson (of Adoration Destroyed). He is brilliant. Erik seems to internalize and live and dream these songs too. Songs that are interlaced with magic, with vibes that are both dark and heavy as well as dreamy and hopeful. I deeply appreciate Erik’s immersion while producing the Kiss of the Witch EP and I’m thrilled to share and drop this new Metamorph song collection later in 2022."- Margot Day

Review

(No bandcamp player available)


I think it is an easy thing to relate to the message of this track. There are countless numbers of us desperately dreaming of a better world, one that should have been, and one that still could be if things change soon, but drastically.


The artistry of the video is rather unique and enjoyable. The emotion of the vocals is highlighted well by the 80's style darkwave keyboard that eludes to a realm of unknown and that's always a little spooky right? Besides, what is Gothic, if not a little spooky and fantastical?


Margot pulls off some impressive vocal ranges and high notes throughout which brings a nice variation to the smooth and steady formulae of track. It very relaxing and comforting in style which helps to aid towards the concept of the song overall I think.

The single feels like a cinematic piece suitable for either a fantasy or sci-fi thriller, such is the duality of the world we currently find ourselves in of the old struggling with the new and all the space in between.


It is definitely a song that grows on you, once you have grasped the concept and listened a few times, it becomes more and more enjoyable. The rhythm and instrument loops really do relax and engulf you in to the music like a warm blanket.


A very interesting an different piece but one I have enjoyed.


Available on Bandcamp for just $1 HERE
