‘Above the Basement’ combines interesting classical harmony with a modern indie rock style, all with smooth voice and an incredibly well-polished production. The melancholic mood of small orchestral arrangements, gentle guitar riffs, baroque keyboards, clean vocal harmonies and borrowings from Jon Brion and Brian Wilson makes it easy to visualize film scenes when listening to the tracks. This is not strange when you know an orchestra of talented international musicians has been summoned to record the songs. ‘Above the Basement’ might be compared to listening winter-songs on a hot summer evening, or listening summer songs on a cold winter night. Either way, after listening these songs you are left with this particular emotion of both hope and melancholy.
