Elson Complex – Blend

This heartfelt ballad will take you to a peaceful place where you probably need to be.

The guitar abducts you to a place that feels mysterious and unknown, but then again it also feels at home, peaceful and quiet. The melodies played by the skilled musician known as Elson Complex manage to trigger emotions and feelings, the music creates a wide atmosphere that is overwhelming but also comforting.

You gotta love the simplicity of music in this one. A theme transmitted just through one instrument, and a roomy setting. Songs like these can easy go the wrong way if the intention is not transmitted the right way, but Elson Complex knows how to have the melodies full effect on the listener, taking his time in creating tension and relaxing moments with changing patterns and melodic progressions. You gotta be skilled and brave to go for it with this relaxed and intense style of ballad since the focus of the listener will be spot-on what you do as a musician. And in my opinion, it doesn’t get better than this. I can almost…well, hear him smile while he plays those lightweight tunes in this special styled ‘floating’ fashion.
