If you’re looking for a melodically sweet instrumental mix to add to your playlists, look no further than Fredrik Pihl’s latest single “Crimson Skies”. The sweet bluesy rhythm toes the perfect line between ambience and drive to curate a sound that has no necessity for vocals or lyrics.
You’re treated to a soundscape that seamlessly switches between the progressions to paint warm and inviting imagery before Crimson Skies breaks down into the intricately sublime guitar solos. Proving that when it comes to fretboard mastery, the Swedish guitar player has absolutely set the bar. As much as I adored the track, I couldn’t help but wonder how Fredrik’s guitar work would resound over a complete arrangement including vocals. Although, I’m not sure there are many vocalists with the capacity to match the soaring heights of the riffs.
