“Amor Fati ” is the kind of track that stands out boldly by “Middlenglish ” from its peers in terms of how effectively the vast, creative input fuses with the professional and stylish output.
There’s a freshness to the sound, part of this is the undeniable experimentation featured throughout – at no point is the track predictable or a victim to complacency. And yet, at the same time as this, there’s a soothing feeling of repetitiveness; a hypnotic ambiance unfolds as you listen – just as you hope it would when seeking out new Orchestral House or electronica to rhythmically mellow the day away.
The track has a great vibe, it’s addictive; the rhythm is consistent, so it keeps you captive, but the sounds are all very unexpected and unusual. The leading riff has a retro and fairly simplistic nature to it, yet the choice of notes adds to the vibe, they add to the intensity, which somehow builds and builds despite the music seemingly remaining on the same plain throughout. It’s a clever bit of production, and it’s always interesting at all times. It’s the sort of music that is difficult to place within a certain environment, but then without a doubt will fit quite brilliantly amidst whatever it is that you’re doing when you hit play. It’s fun, it’s atmospheric, and it’s easy to get into.
It’s an extremely artistic release, the soundscape playing alone is beautiful and sets the perfect kind of vibe within which the supporting song can thrive. The music on tracks is all at once intense and gentle, there’s a dreamlike softness to the sound, but it seems like something much bigger than your average, floating through the mind, an electronic track. There are a multitude of styles touched upon within the song, and it’s quite mesmerizing to listen to, yet you really don’t focus on these individual ideas at all – as mentioned, the music works as one, and the song leaves you alone as quickly as it found you, and what follows is an innate desire to listen once more to really get an understanding of it.
There’s a slight hint of an orchestral meets metal influence with the release, and this adds a lot of style and power, though there’s no heaviness instrumentally – only the building intensity of the music, the melody, the lyrics, and the performances. As the soundscape combines and increases and intertwines, this wall of sound comes forwards that lays heavy on your chest a little, and then soon enough it all falls away, and you’re left with the sound of the world just echoing around you.
