Por vezes há colaborações que surgem para se manifestarem em forma de magia pura. Ouvi esta música pela primeira vez esta manhã, umas horas antes de ficar disponível em todas as plataformas digitais. "Foraker", de Cyrus Reynolds em colaboração com S. Carey (conhecido por fazer vocals e bateria com Bon Iver), é uma autêntica relíquia. A composição tão orgânica e sentida, desde o sublime piano até à percussão vinda das profundezas do ser, faz-se acompanhar de vozes maravilhosas lideradas pela voz já tão quente e familiar de S. Carey. A canção chega até nós em primeira mão através de um vídeo ao vivo que tem a beleza de nos conseguir transportar para o centro criativo e performativo dos artistas. "Foraker" invoca sensibilidade, mas também provoca uma miríade de emoções que mexe connosco, dando-nos alento para abraçar qualquer Foraker que se atravesse no nosso caminho. 

Sobre "Foraker", Cyrus Reynolds conta-nos: ”Foraker, at its heart, is a love letter to my wife, harpist Lara Somogyi, and set in the Denali region of Alaska through the eyes of a wayward traveler. There’s this deep connection with the heart of the glacier (Foraker) and the outdoors and he keeps coming back to this same place to look for something that’s actually inside himself. It’s a harkening back to why I write music, and a new sort of authenticity for me. Before I was writing, I was manipulating all of these live string sounds for Output, and crushing them until they hissed like a wind and knocked and scratched like low hanging branches. I started using these sweeping 808s that hit you in the gut like a mile of ice is cracking beneath your feet and slow melodic synths that boomed from the distance like fog horns. Once I had the initial sound design recorded, I had a world that inspired me to write these heartfelt lyrics to Lara and everything suddenly was coming out into the open and all of these emotions and layers I didn’t know were there. Those are really precious and sought after moments in songwriting for me. When everything just clicks and you can get straight the emotion and feeling.

Já S. Carey diz: "I was fortunate enough to have worked on "Foraker", the new track from Cyrus Reynolds. It's out today on all platforms; check it out!"

E a música é sem dúvida lindíssima. Mais informações sobre o lançamento aqui: https://ymlp.com/zJgIYZ

Frozen steps in their place,
They're the kind you can't retrace
I'm walking off Foraker.

Folding over on yourself,
And lifted to a higer shelf,
I'll never just forsake her,

In the altered glow,
You don't have to speak,
In the ice and snow?
True, we'll be closer then.

You're my Foraker.

Drawing letters in snowlines,
Must be thinking of another time.
And I'll take the higher ground.
Pillars of my faith below,
They're holding up all that we know.
And I'll make a Puget Sound.

Cut your teeth in the earth,
With these rivers of fears,
You'll shoulder your worth,
Through a half million years.

You're my Foraker.

I thought we might rule
The whole damn world
You never saw,
But I'll love you the same.
