Let us tell you about this blockbuster tune…
“Stranded at the Airport” is an indie-alt rock song that features a dynamic blend of synth, guitar, drums, bass, and a powerful female voice. The opening chords of the song are ominous, evoking the sense of being stranded in a vast, empty space, something about this song reminds me so much about my first time listening to the legendary band, Pink Floyd. The opening arrangement of synth and drums with scatter of electronic beeps and button presses truly gives me that Pink Floyd Nostalgia. Not to mention that opening word… “Life” followed by the beautiful upward strum of a reverb cranked guitar as the beat kicks in, the rhythm picks up, propelling the song forward with a sense of urgency.
