With each new release from Alt Folk artist Syne, there’s a new chance to explore complexities in a soundscape while simultaneously exploring the complexities in your own mind.
Meditative music may not be made for radio but it does serve the fundamental purpose of transfixing you in a quiescent moment which requires you to simply exist. Syne’s latest single Plato’s Cave featuring L-FRESH The LION is practically a shortcut to a higher plateau.
The extended instrumental prelude will ensure that you’re suitably zen before the softly resonant vocals kick in. At this point, the track doesn’t feel like it will be throwing many aural curveballs your way. But there was no anticipating the Rap verses from L-FRESH The LION.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget hearing such relentless Rap verses over such feverously pensive piano progressions. Yet, that was just one of the seamlessly progressive unexpected twists which Plato’s Cave had to offer.
You can check out the official animated video to Plato’s Cave which premiered on March 11th, 2020 via YouTube.
