RHODES – Your Soul
aaamusic | On 30, May 2014
After a few listens to Rhodes’ new single, ‘Your Soul’, it’s hard not to fall in love with the intense emotion and soaring melodic vocals that inject such passion into the message formed by the lyrics. A serene and direct opening of the song with simple piano and guitar chords strikes a balance, before the song quickly bursts into the rich and luxurious choral vocals that maintain a contemporary and current feel from the reverberating drum beats and epic character.
The track propels forward to a highpoint of pleading emotion from the lyrics and the way they are phrased. The power felt in the chorus moves the track into a more alternative hemisphere, almost creating a sense of vulnerability but ultimately securing a hopeful atmosphere, making the single valuable in terms of allowing the listeners the opportunity to relate to its sentiment.
You can find the single on his brand new EP Morning and can see Rhodes live when he takes to the stage supporting London Grammar on their UK tour. This is an awesome and poignant ballad; one which demands replaying over and over again, leaving you with a lasting sensation.
