I”m always amazed by the amount of talented musicians that are out there just waiting for an opportunity to be heard. Here we have another example of that with Joey Westerlund, a multi-instrumentalist from Portland, Oregon, who is the person behind Darkfield. The music he creates as Darkfield is catalogued as post rock, with some songs leaning on the heavier side and others, like A New Beginning, on the mellower one. All of them, however, are definitely cinematic.
In fact, A New Beginning –which is part of Darkfield’s second EP, Carry Us Away, released in June– certainly feels like the score of an epic movie about space travel. At the very least, this beautiful track could be the perfect score for this Sunday afternoon. And you can enjoy it here:
