Tides by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith is a remarkable pleasant release for the ears and the inner soul. It opens up with the calm easy going birds exploring the temperatures of a lovely day; but instead of having just nature do its thing it’s the artist’s lovable kindness in music that will make the inner hearts smile. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith manages to use limited sounds to bring a melodically minimalism that seems to breath in and out love in the kindest order. It’s as if the artist captured the senses of naive innocence of a beautiful wishful day in natural surroundings; it’s soft, kind and cherishing.
This is not just the beginning if this amazingly soothing record; it’s a feeling that IS this record. In each ‘Tides’ track the artists explores a theme that is lovable and kind, the music that makes you want to step a pace down, sit back and just enjoy listening. You might want to fantasize a fairy tale like world in which innocence, love will rule with great care. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s Tides is astonishing, delivering melodic progressions that seems so natural and adorable; it’s the music that is easy to digest and yet marvelously in how it’s sounding.
I can’t say it enough, so I say it again; you will definitely love this album if you are in drastic need of love through electronic music, these tracks seem to have plenty of it, and yet refrains from being over the too sweet or bringing it all out at once. I believe that’s why this album is so perfect; with so many tracks covering this self-invented ‘Tides’ theme, the lovely feeling that these music pieces give is nicely stretched out, giving enough surprises each time to captivate a listener in order to provide an altogether intelligent and interesting all round bliss of lovely music. It’s the stuff I want to share around with the people that I love, and my suggestion is that you would do this too. But before that happens, let me share the link to this lovely album as … I love you too!
