“Gamble” is just one of the recently released Dark Folk singles found on the up and coming Boston-based artist Laney Ryan’s latest EP “Doorways & Diversions”.
With this release, Laney Ryan has proven that she may just be in possession of the most celestially magnetic vocals we’ve heard this year. Anyone can pick up an acoustic guitar and share a piece of their soul, but very few artists exude the same captivating distinction as what is found in Gamble.
Laney Ryan’s vocals resonate as ethereal whispers over the atmospherically orchestrated stripped-back soundscape which contains plenty of light and dexterous reverb around the tentatively paced acoustic notes.
While some ambient Indie Folk singles offer catharsis, Gamble offers a transcendental experience – especially when the synergy in the steady and soft vocal harmonies meet the top notes in the melodies.
