The Watch ft. Ethereal Winds


Author Comments

Ethereal Winds and I have been meaning to do something together for years and it finally happened out of the blue without any planning. We were sharing songs and I shared this instrumental piece for a game and we both knew he'd sound amazing on it. So he recorded some singing and we had this version in an hour or so! EW has such a beautiful voice and you should listen to everything he does.

I'll upload the game version at some point later. It'll have vocal elements but not as the primary focus.

I like the haunting, Middle Eastern vibe at the beginning. The warm strings and vocals are both great. I'd love to get a transcript/translation of the lyrics. This piece has a great atmosphere and progression. The mix is a little quiet, but I love how the piece ebbs and flows in intensity over time. The vocal content often seems repetitive, but the instrumental tracks have a pleasant shape to them throughout. Strong work here, guys! Looking forward to more fruitful collabs in the future. ^^
