Featured Song: Xavi – What We Once Were.
One of the most powerful things about music is that special kind of song that can reach into your body and make you feel a plethora of emotions like nothing else. It can be hard to find songs like these on SoundCloud – at least until you discover Xavi. The Missouri-based artist has been putting out incredible song after incredible song and has recently gained attention from bigger names like Luca Lush and Vincent.
His latest song, “What We Once Were,” is a five-and-a-half minutes long journey that builds and develops into something truly special. A simple melody draws you into the song at the beginning, with its simple yet lush sound design. The additional elements, like the pad synths and the bit-crushed drums, are added as the song progresses, and provide a sort of ambience that gives off an almost floating-like sensation. These components build to a crescendo, and then drop into bright and vibrant chords and pounding drums, as you get thrown into the air, flying off the back of the rush of energy from the song.
Some sensations can only be created with music, and Xavi just seems to know exactly how to create those sensations time and time again.
