Unlocking embrace

from FAWM 2021 by The Fishermen & the Priestess



@elesimo: Bill reached out for us to make a collaboration, and sent me a really nice track with dark pads.

I was happy that the key was in Db, because I could finally use the guitar capo that I had bought for FAWM! I added 3 different guitar tracks, with the leads drowning in reverb (using an impulse response from a tower). The drums came from the OP-Z, which I was hoping to use it more on the track but didn't feel it was necessary.

The song came naturally after listening to Bill's track, and I really like all the elements together — they capture well the kind of sound that I love. Definitely a favorite!

@heuristicsinc: I reviewed a song by @elesimo using the OP-Z and thought it was pretty cool, so I checked out their artist page and saw that they had said they were open to collabs, so I reached out. The original track I recorded was Maschine with Massive (2, I think) synths, done with live looping and semi-improvised. I sent the track over, and thought that the result was pretty much perfect! A favorite on my side too.
