Sunlight Ascending: All The Memories All at Once
By Captain Pownzor
Sunlight Ascending is an instrumental band based out of Detroit Michican. They remind me of Explosions in the sky, which if you have heard anything off of the Friday Night Lights soundtrack, you know is a high praise comparison. This song could have fit in seamlessly on that soundtrack. The song is inspirational and uplifting, you could play it to study to or maybe for a nice walk in the park. Its even got a Sigur ros esqe reprise. The arrangement is damn near orchestral and the playing is top notch. Strings ring in the background, guitars play with echos, reverb, and heaps of distortion in places while drums lay down an every changing rhythm. If you are a fan of explosions in the sky I really suggest you check this band out, they are for you.
