SONG PICK: The Beautiful Fear – Arduus Ad Solem
The Latin title “Arduus Ad Solem” rolls easily from your tongue, once you give it a try, meaning ‘striving towards the sun’. “Arduus Ad Solem” is track number six on The Beautiful Fear’s upcoming album “ONE” (May 1st), the first installment of a double concept album. While it seems hard to single out one or two songs from this exquisite album, I feel rather strongly about this song. It balances the difficult act between fragile beauty, desperate darkness and fear.
Listening to the album, is like listening to the creative love child of Peter Gabriel (there’s something about the vocals) and Pink Floyd (creative awesomeness, ambience, mad guitar chops). Get a taste of the entire album and listen to “Arduus Ad Solem”, our Song Pick of the Day:
