East to West
East to West has a moody vibe and just creeps in, and when the beat drops you know the East To West journey is underway. Lush sitar and hypnotic dhol and tabla drums set the pace and the scene unfolds with Kristen Long's inviting vocals. Just as you feel yourself getting lost on the Silk Road, in comes Brendan Schnabel's saxophone solo. The horn rides the groove and then really comes alive, sharing its own story from the West.
After a breakdown, things build up again and crescendo with vocals, more dhol, tabla, synths, strings, and lots of energy. While keeping an eastern and ethereal vibe throughout, the track is really a dance song meant for moving and shaking. East To West does just that, go on a sonic adventure across the globe, absorbing all sorts of funky elements into this upbeat Bhangra influenced fusion. Do as the song insists, and “Take your key and slip away, into an endless night.”
