Disconnected Souls: Create something dramatic, atmospheric and unique!

Disconteted Souls - Petrichor

Disconnected Souls take their inspiration from numerous genres and combine ideas to create something dramatic, atmospheric and unique. With each member bringing a diverse range of musical interests to the table, the resulting sound encompasses a wide variety of instrumental and vocal styles.

We experiment with notions of juxtaposing forces becoming entwined to create something fantastical

Disconteted Souls have released a trailer for their upcoming single Petrichor. The song was released on November 12 2021. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of petrichor – a distinctive earthy scent often experienced after a heavy storm, the combination of metal and classical instrumentation delivers a haunting portrayal of nature at work.

The band comments:

«The new single is incredibly experimental; we’re continuously looking for new ways to compose tracks and create something unique. Holly has been wanting to compose a track around the theme of petrichor for a while and lockdown provided the opportunity to do so. It’s organized chaos, the structure is inspired by various classical styles just taken much further! ».

Thrown into the midst of the storm, the track opens with thundering guitars and epic synthesizers. The atmosphere in this first section is electric with a few eerie vocal harmonies thrown in. The following movement takes a predominantly orchestral turn with numerous folk instruments also woven into the mix. The contrapuntal melodies recreate the randomness of nature, of falling rain and the petrichor that emerges from the chemical reactions that take place. The track The Power Of Love,

 This is an unusual piece that intentionally diverges from the previous tracks Disconnected Souls have produced. Petrichor is a fantastical experiment which establishes the genre mixing and creative composition that is to come in their next chapter.

The band states, «Releasing cover songs every Christmas has turned into a little tradition for us! This year, our chosen track is Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s The Power Of Love. Not only is this a fantastic song, with the unexpected events of 2020 we wanted to try and spread some positivity and love».

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
