TRACK REVIEW: Unseen Things by Flashbulb Fires
by FLASHBULB FIRES
As the song Unseen Things by Flashbulb Fires starts out, the synth drone sounds beautiful. It sparkles like multicolored glass in the sun light but as the song continues to build it also sounds so very somber as well. It is the fragility of this song, the earnestness of the melodies and vocal performance that makes lyrics like, "I saw an angel through my telephone right from the heavens throwing down a rope and if you love me won't you let me know" not sound hokey or overly melodramatic.
Unseen Things creates emotional images that touch you before slowly evaporating into the ether. I am sure this song will grace a number of people's lives maybe at their hardest times. It is that kind of song, one to cry to or look inside oneself when that needs to be done and that can never be a bad thing.
Read a bit of the back story of this track and stream the track here and as always, if you end up caring about this band / artist I hope you will give them your love and support.
