Instrumental music is severely underrated in the modern music era, there’s a plethora of artists who can evoke such immense feelings and emotion out of a few chords with no lyrics or vocals attached that is utterly spellbinding. It’s such a special talent that I don’t think is as celebrated as it should be which is why I want to give nothing but praise to the indie electronic artist Cinnäfinn who’s coruscating music is something quite special.
He recently released his debut project öf being heard out into the world and there’s no other way to describe than an explosion of vibrant colour that will leave you taken aback and begging for more. The whole project showcases the euphonic qualities of his airy synth sound whilst also celebrating the cacophony of beautiful madness he manages to unleash within them. It’s like magic, you close your eyes and see a whole story unfold before your very eyes as the music takes you on a journey that will end with you wondering what magical sonic landscape you’ve just experienced.
The album demonstrates the wide breadth of Cinnäfinn’s sound with tracks like The Snowman Dimension offering a calming ambient sound that melts away your worries whilst contrasting that you have bombastic explosive pieces like Journey to Enamour that make you want to leap up from your seat and dance like no one is watching. It’s an outstanding balancing act that culminates perfectly in an act of pure harmony and there’s no better example of that than the finale track What I Hate Most.
Overall this is one of those albums I know I’m going to go back to over and over again. It’s mystical, magical and marvellous, what more could you want in a debut album?
