What a stunning discovery. “On Ithenfal’s Wing” is likely to win your affection from the very start by releasing “My Willow Tree ” to all the audience out there. The seductive hit of that bass riff is soon accompanied by a very thick yet mellow beat, both of which then come face to face with the slick and satisfying sound of the guitar – all in the opening moments, and from then on it’s nothing short of classic rock bliss.
The song is beautiful, the sound is reminiscent slightly of some perhaps undetectable moments of stripped back, rock from times gone by, but its melody, its riffs, and its theme are entirely incomparable, and so the overall effect is just really fresh and quite inspiring to listen to.
What you can really tell about this songwriting team is that their knowledge and love of real and classic music are strong and thoroughly genuine. The way this particular song unfolds and evolves throughout really pays tribute to the structure of many of the songs that we know and love from legends of the past.
What’s interesting about this piece of music is that the vocal performance really stands in contrast in many ways with the awesome music and melody consistently. The voice is drenched in reverb, and quite unexpectedly drenched furthermore in a rather genuine sounding level of emotion and fret. When you listen to the track and witness the same, you all can feel the truthfulness and the reality of society. It’s the musicality that does this at first, then the closer you try to listen, the voice itself bears something very close to honesty – which suddenly makes perfect sense when you’re knee-deep in the overall sound and instrumentation. As is the case with a lot of On Ithenfal’s Wing’s songs, the music has a sound that is creatively and expressively free, and this takes shape in whatever ways the artist deems fit at the time, which keeps things consistently interesting.
