Xander The Great, now titled Xander Ghost, the songwriter, will release new project, Psychotropica, later this year. Now we have “Run”, and it is another slice of clever atmospherics.
“Run” begins with odd, indistinct sung words before the vocals proper kick in. It has searching noodling on the guitar before the massive sound kicks in. The track is incredibly multifaceted, several things going on at once, to the point the listener’s probably better rewarded listening to it more than once.
The middle section, for example, deep, brooding and atmospheric, is very detailed, which precedes a very abrupt ending, with no fadeout. This maybe serves as to shock the listener, pricking them from any sort of reverie they perhaps maybe in.
