IANADI – “Spirit”

“Spirit” is a stimulating new track from Boston-based singer/songwriter IANADI. Ghostly vocals and a psychedelic sitar lead craft an intriguing introduction, inspired by Ennio Morricone’s western scores. The track is propelled shortly thereafter by buzzing synths and guitar fragments — aesthetically reminiscent of Kate Bush. I’m enjoying the quick rise from ghostly beginnings into a melodic, more accessible sound. The vocals exude a free-flowing quality, working excellently, especially at points like the two-minute mark, seamlessly alternating between suave and expressive tones (the latter “desert of dreams,” in particular playing nicely). Sitar-y re-emergence and wordless vocal passion, approaching the three-minute mark, helps drive into a satisfying conclusion. “Spirit” consumes with a creative, melodic sound.

“Spirit” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.
