Indie folk rock song, “They Exist” by Books Of Moods, a Parisian indie folk rock project consisting of Woodrow & Luth, is here to change your take on folk music. Because “They Exist” is mesmerizing and euphoric, while being subtly upbeat in its melancholia.
The song opens with a rich, deep, and velvety voice, setting the tone for a melancholic yet subtly upbeat musical exploration. The lyrics are delivered melodically, resonating with heartfelt emotion. The distinct quality of his voice draws listeners into the narrative, creating a sense of intimacy.
As the song progresses, a high falsetto combines, beautifully contrasting with the low, deep voice. The song becomes a multi-layered, vibrant improvisational piece. The song’s instrumentation, notably the glinting guitar riffs, complements the vocal performance perfectly.
“They Exist” also features choral backing vocals that lend an angelic quality to the composition. This harmonic dimension adds an ethereal layer to the song. The combination of deep, resonant voice and angelic backing vocals creates a unique and captivating sonic atmosphere.
The release of “They Exist” is part of an exciting musical journey. The listeners have more to look forward to. Two additional singles are scheduled for release in 2023, followed by an EP in January 2024. This Parisian project is undoubtedly one to watch. So mark your calendars and stay tuned for more of Books Of Moods’ enchantment.
