Ronald Van Deurzen – “Night Walk”


“Night Walk” captures the power of a tranquil nighttime stroll, when the day’s bustle fades into a more serene escape. The piano-driven single is melodic and atmospheric, showcasing the work of Dutch artist Ronald Van Deurzen. The production enamors in its range from piano-laden sidewalk traversing to swift string-forward rushes through urban tunnels, conveyed visually as well in the track’s music video.

A contemplative glow permeates within the soundscape, expanding from a gentle string-laden calmness into emotive piano touches. Cinematic strings flourish past the one-minute turn, with a climactic whirring aptly present alongside the video’s tunnel-traversing imagery. A frolicking mandolin underlies thereafter, resembling the rhythmic pulse of public transit, as the piano lines assume a more ardent expression into the meditative final minute. “Night Walk” struts a blissful atmospheric charm, paired with a video that enjoyably accompanies its nocturnal soundscape.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
