Prepare to hear Martin Lucassen like you’ve never heard him before. Whilst the accolades may fall around him for his Indie Rock arrangements, what he has created with “Why Today” from his latest album “On My Way” goes beyond piercing. The atmospherically mastered single unfolds through the stabbing notes of the piano with the orchestral swells of violin and Martin Lucassen’s effortlessly smooth vocals. The soundscape may leave you reaching for the tissues by the time it has faded to a pensive close, yet, there are very few tracks which possess emotive qualities this potent.
Many tracks may be described as fluid, but yet again, Martin Lucassen’s talent transcends what we’ve heard from any other artist this year when it comes to composing a rich arrangement of sound which progresses in seamless synergy.
