Gianfranco GFN – “Doctor Wind”


A track from Gianfranco GFN‘s upcoming album, “Doctor Wind” is described by the Swiss artist as “a meditation that explores the power of the wind and its impact on our spirit.” A flurry of charismatic brass tones and funky rhythmic undercurrents drive into the “here comes the wind, the Doctor Wind to take my cares away,” refrain. The triumphant arrival of “the wind,” finds compelling bolstering by backing vocal reflections and a series of catching structural twists, particularly upon the yearning “you run through my head,” bridge past the one-minute turn.

A grooving, jam-friendly appeal takes hold at the track’s mid-point, as the vocals take a momentary reprieve. Brass, organs, and rhythmic momentum combine for an atmospheric pull, as the vocals re-emerge thereafter with cohesive immersion. Filled with stomping brass passion and exuberantly infectious vocal work, “Doctor Wind” is a standout blast of energy (and reassuring wind) from Gianfranco GFN.

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

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