Vinius – “How Much Would It Take”


The project of San Francisco-based TV/film composer Devin Farney, Vinius emphasizes Farney’s ability to craft warmly evolving textures, heavy on atmosphere and consuming melodic shifts. Primarily led by keyboards and synths, Vinius shows its pop-driven charm on new track “How Much Would It Take,” a highlight from the project’s recently released debut album Heart and Bladder. Around 01:57, Farney’s “I will not go,” vocal line combines with a gorgeously lush guitar progression, which uplifts the track’s melody into new heights. This is my particular favorite section of the track, though there are an abundance of great moments — from the orchestral pick-up about a minute later, to the final minute’s soaring chamber-pop spectacle. “How Much Would It Take” is a gorgeous track from a very impressive debut album.

“How Much Would It Take” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
