“Black Maps of Light” is the intricately arrestive latest single from up and coming Columbia, US Alt Rock artist Halcyon Fields.
There are very few ways to aptly allude to how much catharsis spills as you listen to the technical guitar progressions as they weave their way through the snappy unpredictable time signatures. But my own rhythmic pulses felt the relief to being handed over to the command of Black Maps of Light.
The momentum deftly ebbs and flows, but the immersive exhilaration of listening to a powerhouse carve a brand-new sound by using a smorgasbord of heavy vintage elements remains a constant. And if that weren’t enough, the lack of restraint in the vocals and the way the passionate artistic expression bleeds through brings yet another captivating element to Black Maps of Light.
