As we anxiously await the arrival of Sound Quelle's debut artist album, it is our great thrill to present the lead single and title cut, "Iridescent," featuring the rousing vocals of Brandon Mignacca. An incredibly promising collaboration that has already yielded the standout singles "Andromeda" and "Ethereal," this extraordinarily gifted duo has graced us, once again, with an emotionally penetrating and truly unforgettable tune.
Sound Quelle's moody and suspenseful instrumental textures set the stage for the introduction of Brandon's first verse, the intensity (and fragility) of which is immediately conveyed: "Lights save me; I'm breaking into dust, the darker it becomes." The arrangement takes the form of a call-and-response between the vocalist's emotional pleas and the instrumental interludes, which cathartically release the lyrical tension. The song reaches a stirring climax in the main breakdown, when Brandon delivers the titular refrain, "I've been looking for a way out…, refracting all your light to stay, iridescent 'till the light's out." The drop section to follow proves to be a soulful conclusion, as the singer's tender wails echo and fade into the darkness.
