Track of the Day 495 : Saltland – I Only Wish This For You

After enjoying Claire M Singer’s album so much last year, I’ve been looking for more cello-led music to enjoy. Saltland’s wonderful I Only Wish This For You is my favourite discovery to date.

The track uses layered cello loops to create a tense, fearful atmosphere, perfectly suiting the lyrics of rebellion and resistance. The album ‘A Common Truth’ from which this single is taken is a meditation, and this track appropriately reflects the feeling when thinking of that topic, of almost overwhelming despair, with just the smallest dash of hope.

The first 483 tracks of the day can only be found on my Tumblr. Everything since can be found here. There’s also a Spotify playlist of every single track of the day (or those available on Spotify at least) below:
