Watching the news can fill you with an enormous sense of dread, that leaves you feeling a little hopeless. This is something that Antisolar know about, but they are turning these emotions into the drive to make the world better through their single ‘Do We Tremble at Night?’. Through the single, the duo has us considering what we can each do to make the world around us a better place, despite all the seemingly overwhelming challenges we face.
The contemplative tones and soaring declarations of the single were inspired by Olivier Raynal’s feelings while watching the news of a mass shooting. With long-time friend Andrew Doolittle, he turned the emotions and thoughts of the time into an engaging and inspiring single. The duo have been friends for almost two decades and have written music together over the years. Now, they are unleashing their work through this musical project.
‘Do We Tremble at Night?’ gently awakes with a delicate acoustic tone that is like a breath of spring air. The tender tones of the melody are so touching that they hook you into the emotional heart of the track from the first moment. The almost folky tones of the melody warble into a burst of acoustic rock power. The beats seem to push you to new heights as they resonate through your chest. The movement from gentle meadow acoustics to the reaching call of the electric guitar is beautiful. Through the melody, you can feel the fear of the overwhelming challenges we all face, but this is transformed into power for the chorus that fills you with the strength to make the changes we all need.
The powerful movement of the melody is felt through the vocals and taken to new heights. As the tender tones open the soundscape, the vocals have an almost whispered quality that makes you feel like you can’t speak any louder. There is a feeling of nervousness woven into the vocals as they consider the negative emotions we all face. When the chorus hits, there is a defiant feeling to the surge of the vocals. This feeling has a subtle strength to it as it calls out to our souls and tells us that we have to make the world better for a brighter future. The interplay between fear and strength through the verses and chorus, has been wonderfully handled making the single really addictive.
