Evr!, a relatively new face to the fandom music scene, is making quite a splash lately with beautifully-crafted chillout music. Their latest track, Luminance, is a warm, atmospheric piece, perfect for when you want to just relax or feel immersed in peaceful waves of solitude. Chill percussion echoes in tandem with drifting melodies and gentle piano chords, as this track sparks imaginings of ambient rivers, peaceful forests, underwater dives, sandy beaches, and whatever other gentle landscapes bring peace to your mind. This ambient track is part of P@D’s newest album, “Dreamwalkers,” so be sure to check out the rest of the album, as well!
Thunder Dash – This Is How A Unicorn Dreams (Izzy’s Lullaby) | Orchestral/Ambient
Borrowing from Izzy Moonbow’s “Fit Right In” from MLP’s “A New Generation,” Thunder Dash’s “This Is How a Unicorn Dreams” combines the gentle, soothing vibes of ambient music with orchestral sounds suggestive of ethereal pipe organs, softly punctuated by airy bells. The piece feels cathedral-like and dignified, like a wedding procession of hopeful dreams. With gentle piano carrying the lullaby’s main melody, an array of humming choirs, crystalline chimes and other dulcet tones support the melody to create a dreamy, mystical, magical feel worthy of getting lost in.
Direct Current – Evening Gloom | Ambient
It’s often agreed that listening to ambient music is a fantastic method of relaxing, and Direct Current’s new ambient track “Evening Gloom” exactly shows why. As you hear the calm ambient pad rolling in, you immediately feel a range of sensations as if the sound of the river is flowing across your body and the angelic voices are singing near your ears. I really adore how the tranquil environment and serene harmony are well combined to paint a peaceful, undisturbed scene. Whether you’re looking for a moment to put away your stress or just enjoying the music of nature, this track is definitely a great choice for your playlist. Gorgeous work!
One Track Mind – Everywhere at the end of Equestria | Ambient
One Track Mind, delivers us a very, very intriguing Yona track. I find it ironic how this is a composition that was simply manifested out of nowhere, yet I find a very bittersweet feeling as mentioned in the comments. As if Yona and/or you are looking at a very bittersweet memory with a smile on your face and reminiscing about it. That’s just how I see it, but maybe One Track mind had something else…in mind (no pun intended I swear). But that’s what I like about writing specific articles for musical pieces such as these; to let the listener speak for themselves on what they think about it, and let them draw their own conclusions.
Ante Up – Lay Your Head | Dark Ambient
Holy… okay, it’s been a while since I’ve heard anything dark ambient, and this track honestly just takes the cake. It begins with Fluttershy’s lullaby and a distorted pad. Then all the other instruments join in, making the soundscape almost mystical. You start to feel as if your soul has just been enveloped in this utter despair, and it’s amazing! “Lay Your Head” is full of little changes that make it very interesting, and all the elements pull you in to keep listening. I really recommend this if you’re a fan of the genre!
Jeff Burgess – Before These Mighty Skies | Alternative Cover Album
Once upon a time in the magical time of 2013, Le Soldat Pony released “Before These Mighty Skies” as an innovative, indie/alternative sound that was quite new and distinctive to the fandom. Le Soldat may not be a common name nowadays, but another longtime fandom musician certainly hasn’t forgotten. Jeff Burgess revived the ideas of the songs from the original album and transformed them into his own form of covers, even continuing to add bonus alternatives to the bandcamp album following the initial release!
Burgess’ sound mixes elements of indie, alternative, ambient, progressive, and folk to capture a full, distinctive sound that manages to come across as both somber and nostalgic – almost as if the songs themselves are thinking of Le Soldat and wondering where they are now.Continue reading
4everfreebrony – Brighter Days Ahead | Ambient
4everfreebrony’s most recent installment of his Tranquil Tuesdays series offers us a track with equal measures of warm and refreshing vibes. Sweet synth and bell arpeggios sprinkle delicately over a confident, optimistic piano piece, painting a pleasant sonic picture with just a hint of bitter-sweetness.
EveryDayDashie – Mystical Ponyverse | Ambient House
Who said only ponies would get songs dedicated to them? In this lovely track by EveryDayDashie we get a feel for what it has to be like to step into Zephyr Heights for the first time, like the city this track has all sorts of fun elements, making for a fun combination to really enjoy!
[P@D] Kyradeen – Incertitude | Ambient / Chillout
Kyradeen has, this time around on P@D: Zenith, crafted a tale that brings together the joys of life and its conflicts. In her own words the structure of the music, the elements of pianos, sine synths, and other features in the flow of this track, convey her fears and anxieties. But then there’s the image of Fluttershy, the counterbalance of those things – comfort, warmth, and peace. It’s a mindful piece of music to listen to, a well-composed one fitting for one of many talented orchestral bronies on this album. Beautiful stuff here. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Frozen Night – Ambient.White (Original Soundtrack Vol. 1) | Orchestral

While the game awaits its official release, Frozen Night has whetted our appetite for more by posting individual tracks from the OST on his YouTube channel. Now, however, the full collection of tracks has officially been released for all to enjoy! The album features all tracks that were previously released, as well as brand new ones.
