Grass Shadows Give You Much to Cry About in "The Garden of Tears and Hope"
Zingy, springy polyphony pulls you into Grass Shadows' "The Garden of Tears and Hope".
Beneath the cheer is luckless muck and mire, melodic to a T and devoid of reverie.
The result of much wonder...
The sum of lost parts... Sorrow pulls you under.
Acceptance warms your heart.
"What is ripped can be stitched..."
Grass Shadows' "The Garden of Tears and Hope" takes two typically opposed positions in sound and soundly smooshes them together.
Deep and sullen, a brooding voice expounds in gloomy agony, juxtaposing prettily with alarmingly upbeat harmony. Silk-smooth flute and silvery strummed strings spark in combining to form a fluorescent fire of sonic serenity in this song.
Lyrics let us in on deep pain and longing, then ambivalence in the face of faltering faith throughout "The Garden of Tears and Hope". This song sinks deeper into a beautiful depression with each passing second.
There are enough reasons to listen to this song to warrant doing so, but its salient use of complex emotional input plays a major role for sure. Go ahead and listen; you're likely to like it.
