There’s aural concordance, and there’s being put into a catatonic stupor by deftly melodious feats of gentle alchemy. With up and coming acoustic singer-songwriter Sorrel’s latest single “Window Shades” we definitely found the latter.
Any fans of Elliot Smith and Paul Simon should prepare to be enamoured by this evocatively arrestive acoustic hit which allows the guitar to weave around the piano keys and the depth of the quiet vocals which transform Window Shades into a transfixing lullaby. Instead of the same four-bar chords, you’ll be able to appreciate the delicately distinctive fingerpicking guitar patterns, which despite their lightness offer plenty of sonorous captivating complexity.
If you haven’t noticed, I can’t say enough good things about Window Shades, finding an artist who offers such an immersive transient experience is like finding a needle in a haystack. They’re more than worthy of 3:56 minutes of your time.
