After a series of live and studio singles, extended plays, and one live album, Dutch psychedelic rock artist David Gould returns with another outstanding studio single. Halfway House showcases the creativity, ideas, musicianship, and skills of this highly experienced artist. Besides carrying a decent amount of nearly hypnotic chants, Halfway House leans much more towards technically demanding orchestrations, so this track could easily classify as an instrumental track. Of course, as I said before, the artist implemented some profoundly meaningful lyricism throughout the entire composition, but for some unexplained reason, his outstanding musical skills are shining brighter. Halfway House is something you surely don’t want to miss.
David Gould mainly focuses on psychedelic rock ambiance, but actually, this number serves as a comprehensive collection of cleverly assembled musical elements. You may stumble upon a progressive rock, math rock, classic rock, or art-rock, and you may find some pleasant ambiance lurking around beneath the layer of flawlessly performed virtuosities. The entire track is performed on a classic and acoustic guitar, but you’ll also hear beautiful keys, ambiances, percussions, and Gould‘s vocals. Therefore, if you’re a fan of the beforementioned genres, Halfway House will indulge your listening apparatus with its soothing chord progressions, melodies, and harmonies. The single is available for listening on all streaming services.
