What a joy to hear the ambient strains of Sleepthief! Justin Elswick’s project goes from strength to strength in cinematic and soundtrack sounding epic on upcoming June 11th release “Mortal Longing”.
The track is so delicately gorgeous, orchestrated between strings and bubbling synths, which serve as a fitting accompaniment to the purity of vocal provided by Jody Quine.
The overall ethereally beautiful production, is simply stunning and those bubbling synths along with Jody’s breathy backing vocals keep taking me a step back to 1988 and Enya’s “Orinoco Flow”.
Poignantly sublime and gloriously heavenly all at once, “Mortal Longing’s” exquisite lovliness reaches in and plucks at the heartstrings as graciously as a harp.
