Why do we like this?

A pretty, acoustic guitar-led instrumental track with some interesting percussive samples and layered synths for diversity make RAC’s “Palavra” a truly unique offering. It’s simple, but therein lies its beauty. At just 2 minutes and 11 seconds, it’s also very short; I felt like I’d just started getting into it when it ended in what I found to be quite an abrupt manner.

Like a good dream, this melody-driven, indie-electronica track builds slowly and gently, incrementally increasing in mild complexity, and reaching its peak at around a minute in. Subsequently, it peters off again to begin how it started: an enjoyable, but not very gripping, acoustic guitar arpeggio.

On Twitter, RAC explains that “Palavra” means ‘word’ (interesting, given that there are none on the actual track) and that he used his childhood nylon guitar and an analog synthesizer to create what he terms “a really playful melody that doesn’t stay perfectly in key.”

Released on 26 March 2021 as part of RAC’s new EP, You, this is a single inspired by video game soundtracks, and in that respect, it’s quite nostalgic and fun to listen to.

An Artist’s Life Supercut

Another song causing an almost unstoppable urge to create a montage. I don’t know if it’s the song’s bellowing and crashing overlays of floaty noises, but this song makes me feel a life I’ve never had.

I’m quite certain this song is, by its intention, about romance, however for some beautiful reason it makes me, rather than fall in love, think of a life lived with an almost passionate joy – an artist’s life. The song creates itself as it goes along, delving deeper and deeper into its psyche, adding sounds, subtracting sounds and forever evolving into something more and more of its own.

I feel like this song is an almost 30-year lifespan compressed into 3 minutes. It’s the life of someone I’ve never met and yet I want to meet them, have coffee with them, feel them and love them.
