This Is Us by Embers In Snow – a ride to the dreamland

Dhaka based Indie and atmospheric rock band Embers In Snow – the solo project of brilliant musician and sound engineer Rakat Azmi, has released their third EP on May-05. The album titled This Is Us has already garnered huge amount of attention among the fans. Personally, I have already listened to this album three times already and each time I felt this out-of-this world feelings in my mind. It was something that cannot be explained.

The first track, which is the titled track – is the perfect one to open the album. The melodic guitar plucking at the beginning which is followed by a soothing sound of the synthesizer, will instantly take someone to a magic realm. A few minutes later during the starting of the orchestral section, the song really kicked in. Folks will find a truly psychedelic/atmospheric experience guaranteed.

Up next is the song Ziva. This one sounds more like – Coldplay meet Pink Floyd. The starting is like the previous song but with more gravity in it. The combination of the spoken lyrics and singing (from 1:33 – 2:21) is another remarkable thing of this track.

And the very last (but not the least) track is Home. This song is more like a follow up of Ziva with the same kind atmospheric feelings and the perfect one to finish the close the album. 

Regarding the whole composition and mixing process, I must say that the band’s frontman Rakat Zami’s brilliant working is out of the question. 

In the end I am going to say that if anyone want to go to space for a few moment, or just want to get lost in a world of surreal fantasy, or just want to walk down the memory lane – then this album is a must to be listened.

The album was released by Mushroom Entertainment (ME) Label can be heard on the band’s official YouTube page and in the GAAN app – where you can listen to their previous releases. It is also available in iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. The links are given below.
