Shell Of Light – Burial

3 Dec

Yep, it’s yet another Burial track. Well, now that I think about it, it’s only the second one. What can I say, the man’s a genius. An unusual and intriguing beat runs through the entire song with a really nice vocal sample layered seamlessly over the top. In some parts of this song, things may seem like they don’t fit the way they’re supposed to, but rest assured, after a few listens, if this kind of song is your cup of tea, you’ll embrace it. The end section of the song is different, and I think it’s the best part.

Summed up beautifully by a YouTuber: “This song is amazing. Perfect for a rainy night time drive. I listen to Burial only when I’m driving at night or at home. Either way it has to be at night. There’s just something about the atmosphere Burial creates that makes it only fitting during the night. This song is full of love; dark, raw passion for someone. So many emotions are created with hardly any words.”
