Two weeks in the past, Snow Man launched the primary half of their upcoming double a-side on YouTube. The superb Tapestry was made out there in full, permitting listeners to indulge within the tune’s satisfying builds with out pointless edits. The rock-fueled W follows go well with, unfurling the complete observe alongside a hanging video. So far as I’m involved, the group has hit it out of the park each instances.
W’s aggressive power contrasts with the extra lyrical Tapestry, echoing previous highlights like 2020’s Tales. Snow Man are unbelievable purveyors of this style and produce an anime-like sense of character to the observe. The riff-heavy instrumental unleashes its full fury proper out of the gate and pauses typically to remind us how splendidly satisfying that central riff is. This provides a hulking presence to the association, like daring punctuation marks closing every musical phrase.
To not be outdone, W’s refrain goes equally as massive. The tempo intensifies as the blokes ship a layered vocal. Wisps of strings add orchestral aptitude. I’m not as enthused in regards to the skittering percussion, which feels flimsier than the strong instrumental parts surrounding it. However, this frenetic rhythm helps forge a standout dance break late within the tune. Total, W comes collectively properly. I’m not fairly as smitten with it as I used to be with Tapestry, however I might see this climbing into the “9”s with time (following the identical path as Tales). As standard, it’s nice enjoyable to see Snow Man embrace the bombast, bringing their theatre expertise to a blazing rock sound.
