Amarante // Enchanting the Siren by B. Toy

Amarante

Enchanting the Siren

Independent

3.5/5

It’s difficult to label the music of Amarante with a genre. While the soundscapes they create are undeniably relaxing, there is a little too much sensuality here for this to be considered ambient or meditation music. Are they New Age? Well, maybe “new-agey” is a more apt description. If you could imagine Coldplay on Quaaludes, you would be close to creating a box in which they could fit. The duo is an Internet sensation, popular with geeks of all types as background music for whatever activities they are involved in that don’t involve blowing up zombies or incinerating dragons. With lilting Chinese lutes adding ambiance, the closing track, “Stardust” gives voice to oriental magic. Typical of the whole album, the lyrics for “Enchanting the Enchanter” – beauty will decay… follow me into the dark… you’re gone but I hear your voice – make this a great make-out album for nerds everywhere. – Bryan Toy
