Temptresssun - Endless Talks (Debate)
Alternative/Alt. Rock, Indie rock/Folk, Classical
Overall Impression: Thoroughly absorbing and deeply atmospheric from start to start, Temptresssun's ambient post-rock/alternative instrumental "Endless Talks (Debate)" is a forever evolving piece of songwriting that makes superb use of its delay-drenched guitar layers, reverb-engulfed synth pads, dreamlike sound design, and free-flowing melodic expeditions. "Endless Talks (Debate) feels very much like a journey, yet the destination is unknown, making for a deeply mysterious and somewhat ghostly musical landscape in which the listener must navigate. Temptresssun invites listeners to enter his dreamlike world of engrossing tonal layers and organic textures, and it's a world I'm happy to get lost in.
Strongest Point(s): Compared to pieces of music with an identifiable vocal performance at its forefront, instrumental music is a wholly different beast altogether and it takes a certain creative finesse in order to pull it off effectively, and I believe it's clear to hear that Temptresssun most definitely has the necessary musical dexterity needed in order to craft a meaningful and creatively intriguing piece of instrumental music that listeners will find thoroughly absorbing. From the delicate layering of the song's many contrasting sounds to the deft way in which Temptresssun carefully handles the sheer amount of ambient sonic details within the arrangement, there's always a strong feeling of tonal compliment amongst the various instrumental parts. It's so very easy for an ambiance-filled track such as this to devolve into a cacophonous reverb-slathered mess, yet this is most certainly not the case here and Temptresssun has made sure that each distinct musical concept, instrumental part, and textural element is given the adequate space needed to breathe within the arrangement.
Target Audience Appeal: "Endless Talks (Debate)" is an absorbing post-rock/ambient alternative instrumental track and I can most definitely see fans of these genres appreciating what it has to offer.
