Before I even hit play on this track I knew it was going to sound spectacular, the track title subtly hints that you’re going to be taken on a journey, but what I couldn’t anticipate was just how spectacular that journey was going to be. The track is drenched in Psychedelic nostalgic sound, with a heavy domineering mix of acoustic and reverberated guitars that drop, swirl and dance over this truly transient Indie Blues Post-Progressive track.
The level of harmony achieved by Harker Roam in their debut track hits you as an empyreal dream that allows you to simply get lost in the angelic riffs that allow this track to transcend above the half-baked tracks that are floating around today. The Salt Lake City, Utah based band take their inspiration from bands such as Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Death Cab for Cutie, they promise to deliver a unique sonic experience through their sound, and they do more than deliver in their latest hit. There’s not many vocalists that I would put in the same league as Thom Yorke but Shawn Homer is definitely one of them.
