Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Rihards Libietis. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the atmosphere of his music.
Are you ready for an interstellar journey?
As soon as I heard the opening arpeggio of this talented artist’s new single “Transcending Parallels” I saw myself driving a spaceship ready to leave for the constellation of Orion.
The tense atmosphere before departure then ends when the engines start and you begin to pull yourself off the ground. The dreamy beginning of the guitar is interrupted by the power of the distorted guitars that literally make you fly.
The sounds are epic and then as soon as you reach the quietness of the infinite space again the song stops leaving room for airy pads that will accompany you for the rest of the journey.
A beautiful discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Transcending Parallels is Rihards Libietis’ Single Out Now!
A Magical Journey!
