In the most meaningful of musical ways, Solarstone today signs off on a truly epic career year.
Having previously found collaboration alchemy with Betsie Larkin through ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ and ‘Breathe You In’, a reteaming for the pair has become an evermore-requested one. One also long anticipated as ‘Indestructible’ – their new co-creation – marks the pair’s first rematch in six studio years.
Placing a momentary pause on the abiding uplift and floor elevation of Solarstone’s ‘3’ album, the track served a meditative midpoint oasis for his latest longplayer. Introspective of lyric and expressive of song, through it Betsie rhapsodically contemplates love’s indomitable side. Never less than poignant, its love-conquers-all message couldn’t be clearer.
Solarstone’s supporting production is a study in majestic slo-mo, with Richard fashioning nothing less than a tapestry through its soaring guitars, atmospherically charged piano and imaginative percussion arrangements.
Ahead of a Club Mix treatment in the New Year, ‘Indestructible’s devastating Original arrives on all good download stores and streaming platforms today (https://blackhole.complete.me/indestructible).
