Simfonia covers "Castles in the Sky" with a toned-down yet soaring approach,
Classically enhanced synths swirl as Simfonia uses their beautiful and powerful vocals to bolster the original to new heights. Experiencing an emotional moment of an identity crisis was the fuel that ultimately led to the creation of this more stripped and slow version of this well-known song.
Simfonia shares, "One day my creativity block drove me to a spot outdoors by the South Coast where I would just let my mind dream of wanting to chase a dream, no matter how impossible."
Straying away from their typical pop sound, Simfonia delves into more orchestration and an ambient sensation for the listener. The strings are soft and full while Simfonia draws in a breath and with the roar of an air raid siren demands, "So Tell Me Why", and you realize this lyric so perfectly aligns with the mental and emotional state of this artist at the time of the making of this track. As the supporting arrangement swells the vocals continue to carry our ears like wings of a bird over the water. Every track is produced by Simfonia in their home studio on their laptop. Engaging so closely with the music is undoubtedly one of the reasons this song had such a tremendous outcome. It falls perfectly in line with explaining and expressing the personal battles this artist experienced.
Simfonia is the project of Hannah Savignon-Smythe - Singer, Lyricist, Cellist, Producer, and Arranger and has returned after a long hiatus ready to release more works.
