Editor’s note: Better late than never…right?
Russian group Illumnation releases a downright amazing pay-what-you-want EP about Princess Luna! The instrumentation in general, and harp in particular, is stellar. Folk isn’t my thing at all, but this was an immediate download because it’s just that good.
But the true heart of the album is its awestriking vocals. Velvet’s beautiful voice is just brimming with passion. And the lyrics are perfect, about Princess Luna guiding our dreams and watching over sleeping ponies all across Equestria.
Casting Shadows is available to download on ILLUMINATION’s Bandcamp for any named price.
