This is a new single release and music video from Shri Baratan, whose musical moniker is Nonviolenze.
Taken from his latest album, “Ghost of War,” “Mirror” has a really vivid and unusual sound – eery and compelling.
It’s kind of romantic in a strange, melancholy way. All acoustic and beautifully played guitar and poetically delivered, haunting vocals. There’s a lot of dissonance, mixed metaphors of sound and words. It twists and turns, sometimes pretty, the next moment off kilter and obtuse. There a pattern of chaos in a way. A repetition of operatic opposites.
If you like Jethro Tull and Al Jarreau then Nonviolenze is probably a perfect addition to your rotation. The music is both clever and impolite, complex and gorgeously produced, edgy and classical…obviously very hard to define, which is maybe his point.
Once in a while it’s a good idea to try listening to the inside of someone else’s head. I think “Mirror” is exactly that. A clearly accomplished musician and a thoughtful and purposeful writer showing you something of himself…bravely different, honestly out there. Bravo for fearlessly expanding our minds a little in a deceptively melodious way.
