Painted Into Things taps into a hypnotic lush beauty with “Something Beautiful Won’t Come Out”. Tapping into “The Bends” era Radiohead, the track has a majestic grace to it. Indie rock, ambient, with a hint of the orchestral filter into the mix lending it a tremendous spirit of life. By opting for this tact, the whole of the work has a fully realized cohesive quality. Easily the highlight and what ties it together are the fantastic vocals. Delivered with a clear-eyed sense of purpose the lyricism opts for a poetic stream of consciousness. Highly articulate Painted Into Things picks their words carefully giving each line equal weight.
A rich instrumental mix introduces the piece. The dreamy disposition works wonders as it swirls about in a glorious haze. Strings go for a cinematic fervor while they sweep across. Melodically dense the way these many layers interact helps to give it an impressionistic quality. Drums go for a lighter touch never overpowering the piece. With a focus on texture the song ebbs and flows in a pastoral way, always making sure to retain a certain lightness. Sculpted with care the vocals rest front and center of the entire song. Towards the latter half of the track Painted Into Things gains further impact by slowing stripping away the elements of sound until all that is left is the expressive guitar.
Full of loveliness, Painted Into Things crafts a unique sonic universe with the soulful “Something Beautiful Won’t Come Out”.
