Get Ready to Love Alius's "Impossible to Love You"
Alius's new track "Impossible to Love You" is a virtual experience of song.
Sweet, succulent singing tiptoes all over an elegant arrangement.
All the intrigue of misplaced love wrapped into a swirl of sonic color makes "Impossible to Love You" a lovable tune.
"You call me in the morning, half past 2..."
Night sky pours through your bedroom window like ink from an upturned vat.
Wind blows at your thoughts like a tempest. You're a candle in the wind.
A pebble pecks the glass beside you. You thought they'd never come...
Minutes later, you're stepping out into the ink, and open arms.
"Even when you hold me, I'm still feelin' lonely..."
There are sounds twinkling on high and rumbling underfoot in "Impossible to Love You."
Singer Silver's voice is particularly enchanting - rousing the pulse as a pitch-shifted mini-choir (ala Imogen Heap) when the chorus comes around. On verses, she's but a susurrus of longing in hollow space. Beautiful.
Alius works the song's elements into a loose tangle throughout the verses and marches them out into a straightforward beat for the chorus. It's a full, living experience, tipped with nuance.
This song is more than possible to love and could well be your next fave listen if you're already a pop edm person.
Even if you're not, it's got something for you.
