Wordless Wednesdays

Wordless Wednesdays is our column where we spotlight the best new instrumental tracks.

After a few weeks of non-stop wordsmiths, we’re happy to dip our toe back into the pool of tranquility that is instrumental works. Check out the latest from Versa and T.O.L.D. after the jump.

We know it’s an easy cheat to say an instrumental track is cinematic, but damnit “Sea of Vapours” by Versa IS cinematic. We blame the flute and violin that lead us through the first half of the track. Gives the whole affair that beautiful and slowly epic feel of both an Oscar winning period drama and a crowd pleasing fantasy film. This is not to say that we shouldn’t also give credit to the tasteful guitar and percussion moving the whole thing forward with a rhythm as gentle and consistent as grass pushing up through the soil. It’s a lovely song and one that will make your entire day feel as if it’s being shot during the golden hour.

We love it when a title doesn’t try to be too coy or artsy. “Glorious Noodle (As The World Burns I Play My Guitar)” by T.O.L.D. lets you know before you even hit play what to expect. Guitar noodling? Check. Something to fight off that pesky end-of-the-world dread? Check. Melodic and expansive and surprisingly uplifting considering the inspiration. Our only complaint is that 2:56 it feels too short, like we’re just getting started. But not every song can go a full GYBE marathon session, nor should they have to. Sometimes you can only noodle so long before getting back to prepping your survival bunker.
