Hybrid, “Usual Rules”

If you have followed this blog for more than two years, you might notice that I have written about this Welsh band for a few times. Their latest album “Light of the Fearless" was released last July, but I couldn’t find the right mood for it until recent weeks. This is the band’s fifth original album, and their debut album was released in 1999. So many years have passed, the band members have changed, and they also have tried to write music for TV shows, films, and video games. Being their fan needs to be patient. Last summer we finally have got what we have been waiting for, and the Godot we are waiting for really worths the wait. My favorite tack is “Usual Rules." The song itself is already like a short film, a cinematic soundscape having its own story. I love the orchestra and piano parts at the background, and the sound of woodwind (I think that is saxophone) is a nice surprise.
