This was mostly done due to my feeling well enough at the moment to be productive.
Was the result worth the effort? Probably not. Still, I sort of captured what happens in the song. Probably could’ve used more words and covered a bit more, but that isn’t what happened.
Envy’s “A Hint and the Incapacity” is from Recitation.
I hope you enjoy.
In a space guitars play a gentle melody. There is a familiarity that it holds, but it does not linger on that familiarity. Bass comes in and also plays gentle. It seems to offer a platform upon which the guitars continue on with their melody.
Soon vocals and percussion join in and they too lack harshness. Another sound lingers among the instruments and the melody moves through a fragility with ease. Eventually all shift to something with a little more melancholy. This does not last, however, and soon the instruments begin to build toward something.
The build starts with the guitars and spoken word. Soon guitar and bass come in. Volume seems to increase and a grandness emerges. A brief pause and the instruments gain greater intensity. The vocals seem hurried, specific and striking. There is a focus and control, and the mood pushes on outward and comes forward with ease and without grace.
The conclusion is reached and struck twice before the instruments stop and the song ends.
