Salt Of The Sound "Echoes Of Wonder" by Michael Tackett (cmaddict.com) on 2016-02-01 11:12:08
Salt of the Sound is a Swedish husband and wife duo that recently released their new record "Echoes of Wonder."
"Echoes of Wonder" isn’t full of big bangs or loud noise or even louder lyrics (which is a good thing). Instead, they take a stripped down approach that really aims straight for the heart. The many different synth and harmonies are impeccable and with the different track interludes, it leaves the listener focused on the message at hand.
The album starts with a beautiful instrumental followed by a highlight, “Did Your Hear It.” “Did You Hear It” is one of the catchiest songs on the record that bridges nicely between the vocals and the music. “Bring the Rain,” a beautiful track is about “when it rains, it pours” and does a wonderful job of acknowledging’s ones pain while “seeing a gentle hand that is guiding” them.
"Echoes of Wonder" is very much a spiritual listening experience. After listening, it reminded me of some of my other favorite bands, Sufjan Stevens and the latest from Hillsong United Empire. You can tell the duo took their time on each track to really bring home their message. By the end I felt refreshed and eager to press repeat!
