Here’s an exceptional debut EP, ‘Raindrop Castle’ by Luminous Wavez that is well worth a listen. The prolific American-British project excels at writing thoughtful and touching lyrics. Most of these songs feature a simple melody and soft percussion with the exception of “Hold Your Own” and “Goddess” which resonate with more energy. Not to mention, the smooth delivery resembles the great vintage music from Johnny Cash and Leonard Cohen. At times, ‘Raindrop Castle’ is a spellbinding voyage into the past.
Indeed, Leaone is the one responsible for the contemplative vocals, some time ago, he had the opportunity to be featured on BBC 6, a prestigious radio show for alternative emerging musicians. Conversely, Dobbins is in charge of the introspective songwriting process to incite the perfect meditative mood.
Utilizing an array of strings and drums, the whole instrumentals make you feel soothed. Therefore, I would suggest you play the beautiful sounds of this 5-track material after a stressful day.
