I know that these last few months have been stressful for everyone and I hope that you are all staying safe. We were recently contacted by local instrumental acoustic duo, Elmsley about doing a review of their upcoming singles, In Balance and Everything In Moderation, and I realized that it’s been a while since we did a review. So here we go!
To start the violin adds a very nice subtle ambiance to the song, the bassline is very nice and the tone is beautiful. The guitar work is complex but not overly complex. It’s very soothing to listen to. As the song continues you can feel some tension building and the bass becomes the driving factor for a few measures. I love the tapping and slapping of the guitar strings to add in some texture. For an acoustic bass the tone is absolutely beautiful and rich.
The production is very well done and the song is very soothing and relaxing to listen to. The piano and violin add some subtle texture and ambiance to the music.
Overall I think the song is very well written and produced. It sounds very cinematic and could easily be used as the intro to a high budget documentary or TV show. I honestly cannot wait for more from these very talented musicians.
The singles are due out very soon, and will be available very soon.
