Final: Dead Air

With this one I tried to focus on imagery.
It’s a song I’ve listened to quite a lot and so I feel that, among other reasons, describing what is going on in the song isn’t something I’d do well. The result is something that sort of gets across imagery and mood with just enough information in there to get an impression but not a clear picture. I think.

Final’s “Dead Air” is from Dead Air.

I hope you enjoy.

Heaviness hangs in the air and a landscape gradually grows dark. Static seems to appear in the sky and everything stretches beyond a single point, and suddenly there is a complete and utter smallness in a massive landscape that still retains its silhouette. The sky shifts through its stages and sound moves and changes over time.

A melancholy holds as looking outward leads to looking inward. There’s almost a closing though the sounds draw out a staring off into a distance. The world is massive and we are small, and it is overpowering. Its hold grips tight as the landscape grows darker and quieter.

All is almost silent and soft and gentle and the sun finishes setting, and all concentrates into a single point that fades away as the song ends.
