‘Reaper Cometh’

The track ‘Reaper Cometh‘ commences with a delicate ostinato piano introduction that frames a dramatic spoken word piece. From there, it finds its footing with a solid bass and drum rhythm over a single chord. This groove is further accentuated by a distorted guitar marking a rhythmic pattern, drawing the listener into a web of intricate melodies sketched out by the distorted guitar and synth string pads.

The music then circles back to the simple piano rhythm, now supplemented by drums, while the narrative voiceover continues. Then, as if on command, the groove ignites into a sharp surge of electric guitar, intensifying the song before it concludes with the soft piano, this time in the company of sustained string chords that seem to suspend time itself.

A combined expression of lyrics and instrumentals, indie artist Modern Day Icarus from Toowoomba, Australia, brings drama and rhythm to life in his track ‘Reaper Cometh‘.
