We Review The New Single From Gabrielle Ornate – Spirit Of The Times
The bouncing guitar notes shake off your worries in Gabrielle Ornate’s latest single Spirit Of The Times.
The London-based singer/songwriter takes influence from fellow indie artists St. Vincent and Tame Impala to produce a grooving guitar-led piece with bridge notes that groove elegantly.
From the instant you press play, the riffs are infectious and fill you with energy. Ornate’s layered vocals give the track darker tones of an almost psychedelic nature. However, this anthemic track is anything but dark with Ornate wanting you to “spread your wings” and free yourself from the current climate of events.
This celestial track is one that touches on many genres and together feels like an onslaught on the senses that reflect its colourful artwork. It’s as if time has stopped and we’re feeling this brief sunny moment.
Ornate’s vocals are dreamy as they merge into electronics and broken-up guitar riffs. Spirit Of The Times provides a variety of sounds from the early guitar-focusing to an onslaught of electronic noise that batters your eardrums from the background.
To conclude the song, everything comes together with both styles intercepting one another to round off an exciting and cool indie-pop piece.
Ornate once again shows us how she can write colourful songs with plenty of flare and rhythm.
