P-Oiler: Lobe

One listen and it was pretty easy, this bit of writing.
I think that was due to how slow the song feels as well as how little there is in terms of changes. That said, I don’t think what I wrote is the best way I could have covered the song. I feel like something a bit more creative in writing would’ve worked really well here, but that’s not what was coming forward.

P-Oiler’s “Lobe” is from Greatest Hits Vol. III.

I hope you enjoy.

From a brush comes a bass moving in specific steps. It soon moves with some percussion before the two lock into a slow groove. Guitar plays over slow and slinky and woodwind also flows over with a slow motion.

It’s a calm, dark and light and easy, drifting melody that sees an implied build at one point, and the sounds sort of move into a less languid state, but there’s still a quiet to them that keeps everything feeling a familiar continuation.

Once more a sense of build but here the percussion diminishes for a moment whilst the woodwind starts going wild, and another build into more quiet. Woodwind keeps on howling in the distance whilst all else stays diminished until the percussion returns.

The slow rhythm resumes and it keeps its space. It keeps its steady minimalism as it pulls back and comes forward, and the bass drags long and winds up, and the guitar keeps punctuating brief moments as the woodwind tapers off and disappears.

Sounds murmur in the last moments before the bass remains, drawing long before fading away after something seems to cut out, and the song ends.
