Quick note:

This is a cover of a song featured on Game of Thrones, originally performed by Florence and the Machine and composed by Ramin Djawadi. I've purchased the mechanical license which means I've acquired the permission to officially release this cover and monetise it, so you can find it on Spotify and other online stores :)

It's been a while since I uploaded anything here, and I've been watching the latest Game of Thrones season. When I first heard this, I knew I had to make an arrangement of it! I hope you enjoy :)

Wonderful work <3 congrats on the front page!

Your voice is perfect for this. Your mix on your stacked vocals are spot on as well.
This makes me want to hear how you would interpret historical pieces from the 13th-15th century.
Take this piece for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqwtJiS-eBk

Thanks so much Phono! This is a really lovely piece, and I definitely enjoy music from this realm in time. The harmonies and instrumentation are gorgeous! Nice to hear (read?) from you. I need to record some music in a church someday.

As a long-time fan of Florence and the Machine, I of course loved this song the first time I heard its soulful strains. You have done great justice to the original, while the ambient and instrumental differences really make your version stand out.

Suffice to say, you have truly made this beautiful, emotive song your own. Your talents never cease to amaze and delight the senses. Bravo.

etherealwinds responds:

Thanks you very much CN! That's really kind of you and I truly appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Lots of love to you! <3

This song is so charming! The instrumentation is excellent, and I love the drones - they give the song lovely mystical vibes. I like that there's a clear and sweet climax; I didn't see it coming, and it was executed very well. Etherealwinds is quite a suitable name when you make this kind of music!

I got used to it after a few listens, but at first I thought the vocals sound a little thin compared to everything else. This might just be my headphones, but I also sense that the high end of the vocals has been boosted a bit. It's usually fine, but during the parts when there's a lot of layering, it stands out to me.

The fx are a nice addition, and at the end, they help return the song to reality after the ethereal experience.

etherealwinds responds:

Thanks so much for your review and high rating! I'm really glad you liked it. It's funny you say that about my username, because in 2011 when I made 'etherealwinds' on YouTube, I was starting to create more ambient music in the realm of fantasy and Celtic - the first video I uploaded was an acapella arrangement of Pippin's Song from LoTR; a song which evoked in me the exact same vibe and feels as this song did when watching GoT!

You're right in your sense that the high end of the vocals has been boosted a bit. Especially in tracks like this where I want the vocals (and especially the harmonies) to have a lighter, airier more ethereal tone, I raise the highs of the main just a little, reduce the mids of the harmonies, raise the lows a tiny amount but raise the highs more (to position the harmonies around the main, yet above the mains in terms of airiness) :) it has yet to sound too thin on any of my headphones, but it may well do on your end as technology is funny like that!

Really glad you liked it <3
