Instrumental bands are brilliant.
That sentence could be this entire post and I would be completely content.
There’s just something about listening to music without a voice or meaning so plainly put. It’s so liberating. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it is! Though, I think i’ll manage:
A band without a voice is so much more powerful; it’s pure emotion.. or that could just be my synesthesia coming into play. Though, I can’t image everyone else not also associating certain colors or visuals with certain sounds.. not that it quite holds association to emotion. I believe it does. Happy is yellow; it’s a smile. Passion is red; it’s a raised fist. Anger, also red is a furrowed brow and a scowl. Content is blue and it’s an undisturbed sea. Every thought, feeling, or other brain transmission, incoming or out-going is interconnected. They all pertain to one another in a wordless symphony. Words muck everything up. They state the obvious in an unromantic way and just leave it out to be weathered further.
A band without a voice has dimension; it has so many layers to be enveloped by and immersed in. It’s the best to listen to when you don’t want to think. It’s also the best to listen to when you’re trying to focus. Contradictory, I know, but it’s true. All I know is that whenever i need to buckle down and be productive, instrumental music clears up some brain space to have room to review the matter at hand. You could also say it’s prime ear candy for veggin’ out without thought, rhyme, or reason.
There are plenty of calm music with lyrics, don’t get me wrong, but you cannot deny that instrumentals have a power and prowess that vocals can’t approach.
