Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Herald K in the past but this talented artist is back with a new cool single and I want to share my opinion about it.

Wandering Aengus is Herald K’s single

The musical interpretation of this beautiful poem is truly touching.

Already the first time I heard Herald K’s music I appreciated his great creativity and compositional refinement.

Being able to model a song around a poem is really difficult. The arrangements must accompany the words and somehow must push the listener to imagine what the poet had in mind when he wrote those sentences.

The melody created by Herald K manages to emphasize those emotions and take them to an even higher level … like a feather carried by the wind that can reach any beautiful place in the world.

Wandering Aengus is a song that gives you goosebumps … this music is a wonderful gift.

Wandering Aengus: A musical rendition of a William Butler Yeats poem from 1899. About longing and yearning, the beauty of nature, and never giving up on that seemingly elusive muse… Lyrical and romantic, and with allusions to Irish mythology. It is part of an album project titled ‘Mythologies’.

Ancient mythology and literature combined with contemporary acoustic arrangements has been something I have wanted to explore for some time. 2020, 2021 and 2022 has provided the time to pursue these ideas. Allegory, allusion, the collective unconscious… Could it be expressed in a 3-chord song? What if an uncommon old-sounding instrument like the Nyckelharpa is added to the mix? Will the ancient allusions appeal, be made accessible? Could old themes in myth resonate with a modern-day audience? These are creative questions I want to explore in this project… My debut album took a similar path. I tried to work with some ideas I had from reading poets like Baudelaire and Ovid. Make these accessible through simple acoustic arrangements. A chord progression no more complicated than Hank Williams would have liked it, yet with lyrical content that can be literary, yet not highbrow or contrived. Kinda simple and profound at the same time.
