From Sea to Sky
by Tomas Doyle
Instrumental music is and elusive little beast. Without a vocal focus the entire song writing process shifts and the melodicism of guitars, bass and even drums are thrown, kicking and screaming, into the foreground. Any band attempting to make a purely instrumental record needs to ensure that the wealth of ideas that they and their respective instruments bring to the table are sufficient to retain the interest of the listener throughout the duration of an entire album.
