Durante – BigBear

June 5, 2013

Cleaning through my email, this submission, from Austin, Texas, caught my ear and held it. Using muted synths, BigBear evokes a powerful emotional response to this song. Although the hook is simple and much repeated, it does not lose its appeal. The synths suggest vocals, and perhaps they are chopped up vocal samples. Whether they are or not, they provide a versatility of timbre that really draws the listener in. The song sounds subdued yet intense, almost resentful, hurt, but with a will to move on, to become stronger, overcome and prevail. Listen to it to see what I mean. This is a song to listen to while driving on a dark road, perhaps lit by the moon. Enjoy it.
