WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM RUUD VOESTEN – GOESTING
After a long day, you want to put your feet up and relax, and if you’re anything like me, you want to listen to some chilled music. Ruud Voesten’s “Goesting” is that perfect escape. The sort of soundtrack you’d hear in a somber scene of your favourite drama series on TV. It’s the second single from Ruud Voesten. It’s part of a full record Ambrosia, out in September.
I find it hard to stay captured by instrumentals usually, but there’s something about this song that kept my gaze. Inspired by the ring of lust, Ruud Voesten mentions that the lovers in the song drifted into self-indulgence and were carried away by their passions, so now they drift forever.
The track starts as a classical piece before venturing into a jazz-inspired world. It’s hectic in places. Especially when it’s taken over by jazz completely, but the instrumentation is absolutely mesmerising. At just under 8 minutes long, the song feels conceptual. It’s got the power for you to put your own twist on what’s happening.
It has dark harmonies throughout and tragedy is a word that stays right at the top of the mix. I love how simple and beautiful the creativity is.
Picture this, you walk into a jazz bar when on holiday in your best attire, and to your right there’s a jazz band providing the soundtrack. “Goesting” is being played softly behind you while you talk to whoevers in your company. Life is good.
