Top Acoustic Tracks From the First Half of 2014
5. Fanfarlo-“Myth Of Myself (A Ruse To Exploit Our Weaknesses)”
Aside from its slightly over-the-top title, this acoustic-driven thriller from this London-based band’s third record is gorgeous.
Fluttering acoustic riffs open the song, giving it an air of importance, but not of pompousness.
The acoustics soon give way to equally impressive horns and strings, but it’s the song’s opening riff that’s the tone-setter, one that allows the rest of the song to take off as well as it does.
