Delicate and fragile, “Rise (Pop Rock)” introduces the collection off on a high note. Full of joy the song blooms quite wonderfully as the sweeping sound emphasizes the sense of purpose that the song embodies. By far the best track on the album is “Rise (Reggae)”. Everything works on “Rise (Reggae)” from the neon-hued synthesizer flourishes to the playful melody. Right from the start of the track opens with a swirl of sound. Quickly everything begins to come together from the gentle keyboards to the steady rhythm. Slowly but surely the song grows in size with multiple layers interacting creating a comforting sensibility. On the final moments of the track the piece increases in intensity as the song fades away.
Thoughtful, sincere, and infinitely enjoyable Klyve’s ‘Rise” is an absolute feast for the ears.
