Eil Marchini is a guitar virtuoso. The way how the Italian takes on the instrument is like he is taming and mastering a weapon. On his new single ‘Magpies on Acid’ the song initially starts as a drone before acoustic guitar gentle rumbles in. No sooner do you think ‘ooh this is melodic’ we take flight with a folktronica soundscape. Duelling synths and guitars speed along as beautiful woodwind instruments and vocal samples pepper and explode around your ears. Between the guitars and mandolins, there’s a beautiful eruption and then we are treated to the whole piece gently rumbling away from us.
It’s not often I review just a single but this song captured me in a way not a lot of music has done in 2019. It’s superb and you can listen to it below. Eil Marchini will be releasing a self-titled EP later this year and ‘Magpies on Acid’ will be present.
