There’s nothing wrong with getting a little emotional sometimes. Some songs provide the perfect setting to soundtrack the down times and that’s okay. For me it’s a tossup between QOTSA’s “Villains Of Circumstance” or The Cheeky Girls’ “We Are The Cheeky Girls” for which song evokes the most sadness out of me. Steve Benjamins looks to do the same with new single “Purification Ritual” – it’s hard hitting sound is formed of sombre acoustic chords, atmospheric synths and a lead melody that sounds plucked straight from the heartstrings themselves. It’s a powerful little tune that’s beautiful and full of emotion.
