Creating multi-layered musical infusions that pour forth melodic lucidity and a wide scope of illustrious instrumental mastery, Experimental artist, Nick Zoulek, is swinging for the fences throughout his latest release, ‘Rushing Past Willow’, and has released a new music video for “Silhouette of a Storm-Bent Tree”.
Nick begins ‘Rushing Past Willow’ by weaving a soothing level of ambiance with a dose of otherworldly musical mystery that is more robust than sweet yet carries an impassioned element that leaves listeners on the edge of their seats. The second track, “Reconsolidate (In Memories)”, possesses an amazing display of technique that reflects a blend of genre influence including African, Groove, and World. “Silhouette of a Storm-Bent Tree” opens with a frighteningly rich and piercing sound of distress that progressively escalates into an emotive and spiritual resonance of inner pain.
The fourth track, “These Roots Grown Deep”, picks up the pace as Nick Zoulek breathes sensuality and maintains the groove with a concentrated instrumental blast of fervor that showcases impressive control. The sixth track, “As It Hung Around Her Neck”, displays transcendent instrumentals that feel as though Nick Zoulek is seeking renewal and washing away the sorrows of his yesterdays.
“Clench/Numbing” is the eighth track which gives off the intense impression of endurance and is the perfect track for stirring up fortitude in the eye of the storm. The tenth track, “Symmetry (In Memories)”, is an exotic exploration of consciousness that weaves through instrumental highs and lows that elude the preparation that comes with embarking on a soulful journey into the unknown.
“From All of Our Love This Was Lost” is the eleventh track that takes listeners down into the abyss through an experience that has led toward a breakdown of spirit that is honored and faced with grace. Closing out with “Arriving Ever Arriving”, Nick Zoulek attempts to rise from emotional bondage as he instrumentally creates an open space for healing that challenges him to reorder the places that don’t honor his truth.
