Eyal Erlich is a multifaceted performing artist that has placed his live recordings on digital for fans who have embraced his sound with vigor. Check out our thoughts on the artist’s latest music releases below…

The Alternative Rock song “All In All”, is an acoustic sounding performance with contrasting melodies. Listeners will feel relaxed when listening to this song. “All In All” is a textured performance which expresses the various facets of rock music from its early ages to present day. Although Eyal’s sound encompasses a variety of influences, “All in All” is performed with great distinction.

“All In All” appeals to the senses. It delivers hypnotizing energy as the singer beguiles audiences with his vocals. Fans will feel a deep connection to the performance. The song moves from frustrated to optimistic. “All In All” channels a diverse range of elements to not only rock and folk music but modern alternative influences.

Observing the songwriting angle on “All In All”, he demonstrates once again his natural inclination as a wordsmith. While the poetic nature of “All In All” is profound, Erlich makes experiencing the performance so easy. The song, while bringing out its own complexities in terms of how the lyrics are arranged, is likely to resonate with fans who are able to connect with the very personal story being shared.

The performer draws fans further into his unique realm of sound with the deep, churning performance on “It Don’t Seem Right”. Though subtle, those that hear the track will sense all of the musical elements of the song in their hearts. Listeners will appreciate the melodies and harmonies as well.

Once again, Erlich shares with fans his wide range and skillful control of each note. Through his vocal performance, fans are not only able to become engrossed in the music but also allow the lyrics to slowly soak the senses. Often times an artist’s unique voice is lost in the sound. Eyal on the other hand creates a delicate balance between both which is undeniably remarkable. Like waves in a rising sea, his voice transitions between low and raspy to slightly elevated and noticeably crisp. The navigation through his vocal performance is comfortably gradual permitting the audience to savor each moment on the song.

“It Don’t Seem Right” is another Alternative Rock performance, however in terms of songwriting, the structure does seem to be built on several popular rock conventions as well as influences from other genres such as blues and folk. “It Don’t Seem Right” offers a very distinct ambiance that is deep, soulful and slightly dusty.  The singer and songwriter shares that the song is about questioning life, music, love and career wondering how a person can feel as if something is just not right though everything seems to be going great.

Fans who enjoy indie music will love the melodic but often melancholy ambiance on the song “Pain”. The musician, through music and performance illustrates some very heartfelt moments. The song is vastly different from some of the other performances that he has given fans, however it is equally as fitting. With regards to originality, “Pain” is unequivocal.

As we have already established, the songwriter has a very distinct vocal performance. He sings softly over this particular song. He delivers a youthful sounding voice but audiences will still connect with the inspirations that led to developing such intense translations of experiences into music. In fact, the artist tells us that the song is about sexual abuse or the rape of a loved one a topic that is very timely right now.

Eyal boldly presses forth with another display of flawless songwriting. In fact, fans who encountered “Pain” have described the vibe as being intense, touching, heavenly and pure. Erlich performs with a soulful voice that resounds deep within the psyche. He delivers a fresh and unforgettable sound that calmly croons freely.

Another heartfelt song is “Mourning Love”. “Mourning Love” is a moving song that churns out at a slow but building tempo. As progressive layers cascade along this feely performance, Eyal stirs up detailed visuals for audiences.

“Mourning Love” is developed with exquisite instrumentation. Though the song is heavy in terms of ambiance, the musical score is light on the ear. Even when he  quickens the riffs and increases the pitch periodically throughout the performance, it is done so in an aesthetic manner.

The musician clearly has a knack for songwriting and this shows to be true on “Mourning Love”. The verses on the song are incredibly expresses as he slowly delivers each one over the elegant acoustics. He uses relevant symbols to express the depth behind each verse, singing verses such as “although she comes in mysterious ways she shines and shines on” and “when beauty dies” for example.  His songwriting style is easy to absorb and telling enough to be meaningful to the audience. According to the songwriter, “Mourning” is actually about the death of a loved one or lover which of course everyone can relate to at some point in life.

Another song about death is “Rain” which is scored by the melodic sound of a strumming guitar. The singer gives a strong performance with the downtempo recording which is very moving unto itself. “Rain” presents a smooth production with soothing melodies.

On the track, Eyal showcases his songwriting prowess with a collection of poetic lyrics. Through Erlich’s voice, audiences are able to tap into the emotion behind the song and it’s verses. As he sings, “love is a blind adventure”…fans will quickly come to know the intricate metaphors that the singer-songwriter incorporates to tell a very vivid story such as the verses “lay down your empty body” which we think represents a body whose soul has left or “skies sing your gentle breeze” which we feel might reference the spirit of a loved. There are so many lovely yet painful verses on “Rain”, each holding very significant meaning which has thus far been captured by audiences and received well.

The musician has a unique sounding voice which is conveyed through all of his tracks including ‘Rain’. Through his voice, fans are able to experience the music and lyrical content of the song with awe and appreciation. Listeners will get lost in the sadness and pain on this track. Erlich is clearly a talented musician with a compelling voice. He carries a rare tune with indescribable range while sometimes expressing quivering waves which leaves fans lingering with chills up and down the spine.

Sam’s vocal performance on “What You Gonna Do About It” is compelling and his songwriting as an artist is inspirational. In fact, we were blown away by this artist’s talent and cannot wait to share it with you! Check out our music roundup below…

Sam Neher is clearly a great musician and fantastic singer. Fans of the art will find this to be true when first coming into contact with the musician’s work.

As “What You Gonna Do About It” progresses, the song delivers textured sound layers that navigate through various tempos and levels. The track, which is more alternative rock than pop has some very cinematic nuances mostly driven through a compelling string performance which expressed throughout the entire track. There are some pop vibes that are conveyed through some bouncy notes ⅓ of the way through the song when Sam sings, ‘“reap what you sew and I’ll share with you and it’s not a place that you want to see”. This measure quickly morphs into a melodic phrase which then opens up into an acoustic section where the singer scats a few harmonies before converging with the string and percussion-infused chorus.

The lyrical content on “What You Gonna Do About It” is deceived by the title itself. Prior to listening, audiences may expect to hear just another pop song, but this is not at all the case. “What You Gonna Do About It” shares an copious amount of songwriting. Each verse on the song is penned with poetic lyrics. For example, Sam sings, “turning pages on a park bench, the pages of your life that are turning too fast”. He asks, “what are you gonna do about it?”. Sam later sings, waiting on the payphone, and the land line stops ringing”, “what you gonna do about it?”. The verses on the song are powerful and likely to get listeners thinking about significant moments in their life. Sam is sure to let audiences know that he can relate.

Sam uses a selection of vivid imagery to create a sonic experience. Through every verse, fans can visualize with great detail and imagination what is taking place on the track. He brings it down with an inspiring chorus and hook using metaphors such as, “caught in the water of the open sea” and “fire’s in the air like the Fourth of July” and “the story of a leaf in a cloud of blue”. The singer tells audiences that the world isn’t some glitzy show, he wants to know what’s really going behind the facade.

King Solomon

King Solomon

Recording artist King Solomon recently released his album ‘Illuminate the Dark’. The album depicts a very personal and emotional journey of one man who is led to faith through his experiences. According to King Solomon’s Official Website, ‘Illuminate the Dark’ is an honest look into faith and spirituality from the approach of a prodigal outsider coming back in.” (www.kingsolomonmusic.com). Through a combination of performances which include a fusion of sounds, King Solomon sheds a reflective light on the turmoil that many may face when coming to know the Lord.

The album opens up with the title track “Illuminate the Dark” (ft. Jay Singh). The production is scored by a downtempo beat, pensive melodies and a series of poetic rap bars. King Solomon delivers a powerful story while exuding intense emotion. His lyrical performance on this song is inspiring, uplifting and his words resonate with listeners. Artist Jay Singh lends R&B vocals on “Illuminate the Dark” which are a great complement to the performance.

King Solomon sends out a moving messages for fans. He challenges listeners to consider what it means to be shown the light and path. “Illuminate the Dark” is a track that not only offers fans a captivating beat, but it also delivers compelling lyrical content. King Solomon has an infectious cadence that is raw and feely. Each bar will leave an indelible mark on the psyche.

Check out the Video for “Illuminate the Dark” (feat. Jay Singh)


King Solomon kicks the story up a notch on “Altar Call”, a track which is certain to leave chills behind. “Altar Call” opens with a sequence of beautiful piano chords and slowly building synths which do not overshadow King Solomon’s voice. He performs with a combination of spoken word, rap lyrics and sung verses. The song opens up with a humble prayer that is offered up to the Father.

Throughout “Altar Call” fans are given a look into the conflicted world that is associated with turning from faith or choosing to walk by faith. King Solomon seems to cry out over this track, washing it with tears of a very personal confession. After an encounter with the Savior, he shares from different perspectives what a life of doubt holds. King Solomon teaches fans that even though living by faith is not easy, it is worth it to be welcomed into the arms of the Father. By the end of the song, King Solomon sets aside all things worldly and returns to faith.

King Solomon introduces another collaboration on “Yahweh” (feat. Truthz & Moyege). The title of the song references the Hebrew term for God. “Yahweh” through soulful melodies, uplifting vocals and another set inward rap bars delivered courtesy of King Solomon. King Solomon shares with fans a series of questions that arise after reading through the bible. The questions delve into themes about purpose, where God exists, and if God is able to hear the calls of his followers. As King Solomon croons, “I’m facing a terrible crisis of faith”, listeners are encouraged to dig deeper into the meaning of the term “Yahweh”.

The questions that King Solomon offers up are highly-relevant and likely lingering in the minds of followers whether they are convicted or still sitting on the fence. King Solomon challenges the stereotypes of religion and interpretations that are often taught to instill a fear of God vs. fearing Him with reverence.

“Yahweh” is a beautiful production that handles some pertinent themes. Through it’s infectious performance, the track makes it feel easy to explore and ask questions to gain further clarity on what it means to call on the name of the Lord. King Solomon is not afraid to engage in discussions that need to be had, conversations that will advance humans forward into greater insights.

The next cut on the album is “Be a Man”, an upbeat track with an equally as energetic beat. The synth-driven production continues to navigate through the world of confusion of living between two worlds. Using a series of furiously laid bars, King Solomon attempts to reveal answers to the questions of why. Why encompasses the stereotypes and generalizations linked to the idea of what it means to be a man.

One thing that is fascinating on not only “Be a Man” but the entire album thus far, is how King Solomon ventures into a places that are likely in heart of individuals of all walks of life. On the track, he lists one by one the expectations of the of the world. Fans will experiences the frustrations of simply trying to exist in a world where people are telling you what you should and shouldn’t be in one way or another. “Be a Man” is a song that will resonate with anyone who encounters it as it provides an authentic view into the struggle of just living out each day.

“Focus” emerges on the album behind “Be a Man”. The track delivers soulful melodies with jazz-infused instrumentals. King Solomon continues chronicling worldly nuances that have led to the decline and various imbalances on a society level. The artist makes it known that he is here to evoke change if not have a direct hand in it. Where there is no hope, King Solomon is here to change that.

While there may be times when believers have a narrow focus, King Solomon finds through his song that party of the journey is to give attention to issues that are affecting the world beyond the bible. He says abruptly, “I am chasing kingdom glory, that doesn’t mean that I can’t be focused”. This is a valid point to consider when thinking about one’s personal journey and its impact beyond self.  

The next song on the album is “Lullaby” (feat. Anjee). “Lullaby” is a distinctly melodic track with subtly orchestrated instrumentals. The title of this song is ironic as it conveys a childlike ambiance however the content delivered on the song is far more mature in terms of coming to a greater level of understanding.

“Lullaby” is the type of song that provides comfort and reassurance that “it will be alright” as Anjee sings. Every once in awhile, even those individuals who walk by the word need to be reminded that they are free to experience human emotion. Often times we are led to believe that a life based on faith means a separation from all worldly concepts, including love, but with this piece we are reminded that this is not the case. King also sheds some light on the type of artist he will be moving forward, not limiting himself to what is stereotypically expected of a ‘gospel’ rapper.

King Solomon invokes the name of the Lord on “Oluwa Provide”. “Oluwa” references a Yoruba term that is also used for “God”. On the track, which consists of tropical melodies and a warm beat, King Solomon asks “Oluwa” to light his path. King Solomon shares that he is a little apprehensive about taking the journey and isn’t quite sure what to expect.

Sometimes the road to redemption feels lonely however, knowing you can count on the Lord to guide you along your journey brings comfort. The artist shows audiences that it is okay to ask for help along the journey. The Almighty is there to illuminate the road ahead but the believer must continue to walk. Before the end of the song, King Solomon finds resolve and confidence in the Lord’s ability to be a light along the path.

The textured tropical vibes continue on “Everybody Cries” (feat. ërin Hebrews). “Everybody Cries” is a lighthearted production with gentle melodies and a captivating dance beat. The lyrical content on the track is inspirational, telling audiences that it’s okay to cry if you want to. Fans will find this song to be ironic as King Solomon makes references to familiar elements in a world where we are taught to hold our emotions inside.

Through, “Everybody Cries” opens up a whole new world of enlightenment while challenging the status quo of societies and cultures far and wide. King Solomon is not afraid to go there and makes it very much known that everybody cries, figuratively and literally. The song is a powerful showcase of King Solomon’s innate ability to be original.

Ironically, “Sinking” (feat. ërin Hebrews) expresses the challenges of walking a different path than the majority and what becomes of it. “Sinking” is a song that expresses feelings of abandonment and vulnerability. King Solomon’s performance along with ërin Hebrews is fraught with angst and frustration which are conveyed through the artists’ voices but still, within the song is a measure of hope.

Fans will also relate to this song especially if they are struggling with faith in a realm where it may not always be considered a popular choice. You can literally feel that you are being pulled in different directions and desperate for relief. “Sinking” is a song that will make you feel uncomfortable but hopeful.  

The realization that faith can be exhausting is expressed on “Tired (Small Voice) [feat. Moyege]. By this song on the album, King Solomon has shared with listeners an epic battle against the norm while fighting hard to uphold the power of the blood. You can imagine what it is like to traverse over a shaky terrain where you are just one of a few, a minority an individual who has turned in a different direction from the crowd.

Consider, the excursion that sometimes meets resistance, often leaves you in a desolate space and sometimes brings danger but still in your heart, you must continue to persevere. You continue pushing through because you know that on the other end of the journey is something far more glorious than words can describe. The aforementioned is the experience that King Solomon shares on “Tired”. For anyone who feels like giving up and turning away from the path, King Solomon offers more powerful words of encouragement.  

The weary mood on “Tired” finds rejuvenation on the track “Rise (feat. Anjee)”. “Rise” is another stirring track which metaphorically lifts believers up after peril. One can expect that walking by faith is no easy trek. A faithful follower can anticipate being beaten and bruised mentally and sometimes physically but even if you are at lowest as King Solomon and Anjee tell us, “you can rise”. “Rise” is an intoxicating track provides encouragement, cheering believers on like that little voice inside that tells you to keep pushing.

As ‘Illuminate the Dark” starts to wind down the track, “Hallowed Be Thy Name” (feat. Bethia Morris & Joshua Kilonda) takes on an optimistic tone. King Solomon is not afraid to let it be known that there was a time when his faith did fall by the wayside, however as part of the experience he was able to rediscover joy and enlightenment.  The experience of rolling away darkness and bringing in the light is a very personal story, one that will inspire hope and redemption, something that souls may be in desperate need of.

“Hallowed Be Thy Name” is a very musical production that is scored by festive pianos, progressive percussion and electric guitars and synths. The song delivers a strong feeling of resolve while performing as an inspirational piece. “Hallowed Be Thy Name” casts a gorgeous light upon the name of God and all that believers are able to bear witness to.

‘Illuminate the Dark’ concludes with the acoustic stylings of “A Love Song”. At this point on the album, fans meet with a brand new King Solomon who summarizes the adventures involved in coming to eventually know Christ and everlasting love. While King Solomon is sure to mention that there aren’t enough words to express exactly how deep his love runs, he gets his point across.

“A Love Song” conveys as the end of one journey and the start of another which will lead to the ultimate destination. King Solomon places his heart on this track in which listeners will again be able to feel the emotions poured into every lyric and measure played. King Solomon speaks to fans from a very reflective point of view and the message can easily be digested over the easy tone of the performance.

‘Illuminate the Dark’, a powerful album by King Solomon could not have been released at a better time. When humanity as a whole has seemingly reached new and unsettling crossroads, it is comforting to know that there are artists using their platforms to make a difference. Whether it is to lead people to faith or to offer stories of hope, music is a powerful tool and the voices behind the music even stronger.

King Solomon has presented fans with a rare, adventurous and sometimes tumultuous journey into the arms of the Father. His performance on ‘Illuminate the Dark’ offers a striking amount of authenticity as fans will be able to connect with the emotion in his voice on every single album track. From playful melodies to soulful musings, the album delivers a myriad of vibrations that are moving and spirit-filled.

King Solomon’s lyrical content on ‘Illuminate the Dark’ is raw and full of truth. He showcases a reflective body of work that speaks to a number of themes relating to religion and what it means to walk by faith. Fans are confronted with the cliche “good, bad and the ugly” parts of the journey which may mean something different for every listener. Still, King Solomon engages in relevant conversations over intense rhythms and emotional overtures. He exemplifies courage in the face of adversity and celebrates individuality while acknowledging the role one faithful individual in a global community.  

‘Illuminate the Dark’ is drawn from a fascinating perspective. The album engages listeners while also entertaining them with modern-sounding music. King Solomon is a lyrical force who exudes confidence on the revealing project. King Solomon communicates feeling through his cadences at times allowing listeners into a very intimate spaces. ‘Illuminate the Dark’ is intricate by design but the messages are anything but. While there are not enough words to truly describe the power of this album, but we will leave you with the thought that fans can expect the entire project to be life changing.

Fans can expect to hear some electronic, rock and synth pop nuances on the EP. As a singer and songwriter, she delivers fresh lyrical content that is rich and significant.

The Music…

Every music adventure must be experienced individually, however we will do our best to highlight some of the elements that touched us most from ‘Corinne Crimson’, the EP and the singer-songwriter. Check out our thoughts on Corinne’s latest project.

The first track on ‘Corinne Crimson’ is a song titled “Angel”; it is a sultry production with a spirited edge. As Corinne sings, “I’m not an angel, I can’t claim to be” fans get a glimpse into the unique world of Corinne who is beautiful, bold and completely honest. The song is gorgeously empowering and though it delivers subtle grooves, it is righteously inspiring.

The musician performs “Angel” with a soothing voice, draping it over the instrumentals which are equally as infectious as her vocals. Corinne’s vocals against the music score are placed in juxtaposition as the lyrical content contrasts her smooth vocal performance. Corinne Crimson offers fans a moving message that embraces strength and most importantly individuality. “Angel” is a formidable production that is incredibly fearless.

Corinne Crimson also delivers a pounding splash of hypnotic synths and dark rhythms on “Catch and Release”, an electronic production with playful melodies and enticing ambiance. Corinne Crimson beckons audiences with reflective lyrics, daring to ask all of the questions that many people can only imagine. Corinne croons,  “Catch and release while I’m reeling about”, telling a story that will resonate with fans. In regards to this line, Corinne Crimson shares that it, “is a reference to a heartbreaker reeling in women then throwing them out just for fun, similar to a fisherman that fishes for sport, catch and release, while the fish is reeling about trying to be free”.

The singer’s voice on “Catch and Release” is raw and emotional. Corinne performs with a great vocal range. The spirit that she conveys across the song is reminiscent to some of Lady Gaga’s earlier hits. It is evident that Corinne Crimson is unique, unafraid and using music to share some very deep experiences.

On the track “Honey Brown Skin”, Corinne Crimson takes a very eclectic approach. As she performs this song with lusty lyrics, her vocals breathe dreamily over the highly-synthesized electronic elements. The instrumentals on “Honey Brown Skin” are reminiscent to Madonna’s “Live to Tell” from her ‘True Blue’ album. While Corinne Crimson’s performance is just as addicting, she is blazing her own trail along this massive musicscape.

Next on the menu is the performance for “Say What” which emerges with warm synths, deep bass and atmospheric elements. Corinne adorns this song with luscious vocals. “Say What” is another audacious production that gets straight to the point with zero apologies. Corinne makes a strong statement on the track and quite frankly doesn’t care what anyone thinks. She’s taking out the trash and shrugging off haters without a single care in the universe. “Say What” exudes both fortitude and attitude for eons.

‘Corinne Crimson’ rounds out the EP with “Testosterone”, a song that could not be any more appropriate considering current events.

While ‘Light at the End’ is scheduled for its official release on March 6th, 2018. We are here for the sounds of Scandic Tribe and the girls at G&S are pleased to give you a sneak preview into what you can expect from this spectacular Scandinavian band.

Envisioning the Light

First, Scandic Tribe’s ‘Light at the End’ will consist of 11 tracks total. You can expect that this expansive selection of tracks will provide an excellent opportunity for the band to demonstrate their vast artistic range in terms of their musicianship and prowess as performers. If you are looking for a nice robust album that will provide non-stop entertainment, ‘Light at the End’ will deliver. While music lovers ‘round the world will have to wait just a few more weeks to get the full Scandic Tribe experience, we will attempt to dissect the tracks, peeling out some distinct layers to explain why ‘Light at the End’ is a must-have album for your collection in 2018.

Scandic Tribe opens ‘Light at the End’ with a moving 2 minute introduction which happens to wrapped up in slow churning guitar chords. Between the dreamy melodies played on the intro, an inspiring message is spoken over the track. Phrases such as “Surround yourself with only positive people”, “don’t let anyone bring you down”, “lead the way”  and  “positivity is the key” are offered as the precursor of what is to come.

Following the introduction is a grimy guitar-driven rock song titled “Dusty Sunrise”. Scandic Tribe delivers a sleepless production with intense instrumentals and gripping vocals. Pounding percussion rocks out on this invigorating song which warms the soul. Commanding electric guitar riffs scream as the band performs infectious vocal harmonies. “Dusty Sunrise” is a soul-stirring song that never releases you from an organic high.

The next cut on ‘Light at the End’ is “Only Time Will Heal”, a rising wave of epic sounds and classic rock nuances. While singing a remarkable tune, the band draws fans in with an addicting flurry of powerful instrumentals to include magnetic guitar performances and possessing melodies. There is something very theatrical about “Only Time Will Heal”. The dynamic song would make a wonderful soundtrack for a coming of age film or reawakening of some sort.

‘Heaven’, the next song on ‘Light at the End’ takes a different approach compared to the previous two performances. The song teases with a relaxed introduction before it morphs into another stunning display. Through awe-inspiring chords and surging vocals, ‘Heaven’ slowly rises and crests into a soul-inspiring showcase of contrasting waves. Gritty instrumentation is intertwined within dark percussion and bass while the band’s notable Nordic melodies can be heard half-way through, giving a nostalgic vibe from an earlier time period. After Scandic Tribe’s performance of ‘Heaven’, what remains are chills all up and down the spine.

A song with a distinct rebellious attitude is ‘Revolution of Confusion’, which opens up with another dirty guitar riff, deep drum sequence and the familiar sounding “do you see what I see, do you feel what I feel”. As Scandic Tribe asks listeners to join the revolution as they deliver a sound reminiscent to those of Black Sabbath. ‘Revolution of Confusion’ is a memorable performance with a recognizable metal essence and the innate genius to reach a wide audience.

“Life is Good” is an emotional performance with a slower tempo. The song kindles the spirit with powerful instrumental melodies and inspiring songwriting. The lyrics of the song offer a hopeful perspective while the smooth sounds captivate. Scandic Tribe offers a marvelous contrast between each song, showcasing a boundless range of diversity and a myriad of musical influences.

The title track “Light At The End” is a legendary song that is heartwarming but somber. The lively instrumentation on the song contrasts with the poignant lyrics within the songwriting. With all elements blended together, “Light At The End” presents an extraordinary performance that lingers on after the song concludes.

The instrumental “Angel” is an aesthetic performance and ideal follow up to “Light at the End”. “Angel” communicates through music, a myriad of emotions while holding the listeners attention firmly. The instrumental is very raw and acoustic however it performs like a prism, casting a wide spectrum of textures and luminescent layers.

“Angel” leads into the “My Sweet Baby Valentine” which is a song that delivers a completely different vibe than the earlier performances on the album. “My Sweet Baby Valentine” is another heartwarming performance however it does convey a rather somber tune. The album truly contains some intricate story-telling rather than just some repetitive lines thus igniting the listener’s curiosity about the sources of inspiration for each of the songs.

The subtle vibes continue on “Heroes”, an iconic performance that pays homage to the brave. “Heroes” is a multifaceted song that includes a rainbow of colorful riffs that vary in tempo and pitch. The song has a catchy and emotive chorus that casts a bright light on the overall message delivered. Whereas “Light At The End” and “My Sweet Baby Valentine” embody retroactive nuances circa 90s rock and alternative, “Heroes” goes even further back with a folksy feel yet the song is fascinatingly modern.

‘Light at the End’ concludes with “Sad Time II”, a suave rock-fusion with folk influences and country elements. Scandic Tribe brings their overarching message of light and love home on “Sad Time II”. Though there are dark moments that happen on this track as accentuated by the slow-moving instrumental performance, rays of light can be experienced through the chorus which offers a brighter perspective. As the band sings, “let the good times roll, let the sad times go” listeners are left with feelings of hope and optimism.

Scandic Tribe, with ‘Light at the End’ has introduces music fans to an exceptional body of work which is as imaginative as it is inspiring. While the album ventures down some incredibly gloomy paths, they are overcome by luminescent moments.
