Ukrainian talent Owen Ear returns to Silk Sofa with four brand new downtempo cuts, collectively called "In Peace". Earlier this year, Owen contributed "Screaming Heart" (a collaboration with Stereoteric), as well as his remix of Eric Rigo's "Flight Of The Birds".
"Dazzle" quickly establishes a hypnotizing soundscape, consisting of lush piano stabs and intriguing sound effects on top. The energy expands in the latter half, in which we both witness a prominent arpeggio riff, as well as unique, floating string lines. The second song, "Heartbeat", continues in a similar style: a wealth of mesmerizing synth riffs and beautiful piano melodies are the main elements, while interesting percussion elements and bassline notes create a unique groove. "Ash" takes off with gentle piano strokes and tranquil percussion elements in the background. As the song progresses, beautiful string elements unite perfectly with the intermittent arpeggio lines. Lastly we have the title track, "In Peace". Once again, Owen Ear has added a blissful combination of subtle string lines and refreshing percussion stems to the mix, as well as his signature piano lines. An incredibly lush theme pluck emerges later, uniting brilliantly with the prominent string elements.
