Embark on a Sensory Journey with The Sound of Mountains, Where Each Note Paints the Serenity of the Great Outdoors

A warm breeze cutting through a cool day. The sun winks through branches as you wander through the shade, crunching on autumn leaves and taking in the birdsong. Nearby a brook babbles, a squirrel hides away; a deer looks on, one ear flicking, waving. Instrumental music has a way of painting pictures. It brushes across your mind, colours and textures as vivid as if they were on canvas right in front of you. But there is something that music can render that paint cannot, everything unseeable. The Sound of Mountains is a one-man project that uses this phenomenon to great success. Their debut single, ‘Stretch Out Your Hand,’ drops you in a scene of nature and perfectly captures that which an image never could.

An acoustic guitar is the thrumming heart of the track. It paces, finger-picked, through the wood and we follow it like a breeze. The bark of the trees, their rigid edges and comforting prowess, the slight discolouration of the leaves hit by afternoon light. The view. The song rises and so too do we on this round trail. If you let yourself go you can smell the grass, hear the runnings of little furry things in the brush, follow the flight path of a barn owl, looking for a mouse in the field.

The Sound of Mountains has a masterful inflection when it comes to playing instrumental music. The melodies are intensely emotional, drawing up memories from the deepest pits of your soul. But it's not the melody that’s doing it. It’s everything else. The flick of a finger on a string, the knowledge that there is a human on the other end of this sound, a connection forming. Strings rise below, a subtle bass line treads behind the guitar. A soft and brilliant story told through a melody. ‘Stretch Out Your Hand’ is a song of quality, and perfection. It plays with texture, harmony and structure to deliver an image of vivid clarity. Wholly intoxicating: I cannot wait for more from The Sound of Mountains.
