San Fermin - 'Sonsick' [Track of the Day]

San Fermin - 'Sonsick' [Track of the Day]

by Hector Barley (Google+), 06 June 2013

Based on the credentials and background of Ellis Ludwig-Leone, San Fermin stacks up to be fantastic. Not only is the composer/songwriter a recent graduate of Yale University, Ludwig-Leone has worked with Nico Muhly, all from the musical Mecca of Brooklyn, New York. 'Sonsick' is a fantastic fusion between Ellis' classical influences and unadulterated pop sentiment. The song, driven by the unusual interplay between bold brass sections and smooth, soul vocals, ends up sounding like a delightful cross between Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens.

The album will be released in September through Downtown Records.

    Esben and the Witch have always been comfortable with soundtracking slumber, but often or not (especially on Violet Cries) it was the dark end of the spectrum that they revelled in. However, with 'Deathwaltz' they've crossed the border slightly, which is an extremely exciting prospect. [read more]
