Big Dead: Bellbird

One listen for this one.

I was trying to go for something. I think I was trying to get across the feel and flow of the song more than anything else, but I don’t think either came across too well.

Big Dead’s “Bellbird” is from Bone White Branches.

I hope you enjoy.

A sound stretches and contracts whilst something faint softly moves along lines. Vocals come in, gentle, soft. Guitar lowers itself in whilst saxophone gently fills its place as a wisp.

The guitar becomes a littler fuller, the saxophone returns, more as a gentle breeze. Other sounds come in and respond, and they all paint a scene of melancholy. Slowly a sense of tribute; of honouring comes forward.

Percussion and bass come in, joining in creating image; Slowly all weave together as a journey toward something. The vocals return and once more they follow their flow through the sounds, and all is beautiful. It is sad, weighty, but beautiful.

The bass pulls away, as do most of the sounds, leaving the percussion and synth. They ride out the breeze for a little longer; the percussion halts, the synth echoes away and the song ends.
