Thrice – Silver Wings (Acoustic)
Last month, Thrice unveiled the second half of their concept masterpiece, The Alchemy Index, with the release of the Air and Earth discs. The new discs feature melodic, Coldplay-esque (Air) and acoustic songs (Earth), adding to the hardcore (Fire) and synthesized atmospheric (Water) music released back in October.
I think this package is absolutely incredible, and very neatly ties the other two disc together into an inspiring whole. Above I’ve included a really cool acoustic cut of Silver Wings, the song that closes the Air chapter, and I highly recommend that after you listen to it, you check out the actual album version to see the striking contrast.
Never before have I heard such genius and reinvention in a screamo band… well, excepting of course this one time…
