The John Michie Collective - I'll Write Your Constellation
The John Michie Collective gives the classic psychedelic rock sound a modern touch on their lush “I’ll Write Your Constellation”. Everything on the track has a smooth quality from the sly lilt of the guitars to the gracious glow of the synthesizers that underpin the action. Rhythms too opt for a unique driving quality one that nods a little toward krautrock’s more cosmic adventures. Nicely layered the entire track is easy to get lost it for the swirling atmospheres positively soothe the soul with good vibrations. Melodies here drift up into the air with a light breezy cadence to them.
After a short sample the groove starts right up. Vocals feel attuned to the rest of the sound as they go for a low-key cadence to them. The way the whole of the track seems to explore feels outright joyous. Within this adventurous spirit they never lose sight of those incredible hooks the sort of things that easily lull the listener into a wash of carefully laid out layers. Multiple layers intermingle and are woven together to create a vast tapestry. Nearly kaleidoscopic the whole of the piece radiates a calm, cool sensibility for the band features impeccable interplay. By working together as a single unit they explore a whole other universe, one ever so comforting and quietly celebratory.
“I’ll Write Your Constellation” shows off the John Michie Collective’s deft talent in sculpting a serene sound that is distinctly their own.
