Encapsulating an overall sunny and chill vibe, Roomtone‘s Turkish Saddle is a fun and lounge-y album that screams sun-soaked carefree days.
With an album cover of a man holding a vintage camera filtered in sepia tone, this full-length pays tribute to bedsit bands of the past and present. Turkish Saddle offers twelve tracks all written, arranged, and produced by Alexander Yaker.
Lost and Found opens with a quirky acoustic hook blended with jazzy horns. Yaker’s earthly delivery and fluid voice makes this tracks a perfect backdrop for that lazy holiday.
Showing its indie pop influence, Your Golden Crown is a saccharine love song that’s laced up with glowing keys and steady drum beats. Fire Fire on the other hand booms with its all folk rock goodness. Press play and let its spellbinding chorus charm your ears.
Toning down a bit, Solitaire shows an impressive acoustic arrangement. Tracks like New Mexico, Fields of Fireflies, and Subway Lines will surely make the indie kids craving for more. Roomtone’s formula of combining warm tones, hooking subtle melodies, and chill vocals will definitely attract a lot of music aficionados.
All in all, Turkish Saddle by Roomtone is an epitome of laid-back music suited for old and young generations.
