I was first introduced to his sounds with his most recent release “Ionian Blue.” The song starts with a cascade of angelic voices but quickly transitions to a full arrangement. There’s synths, orchestral elements and an all together original palette of sounds. I was picking up on some ’80s flavor with this song. The song ascends and descends as it progresses. I felt like it was very dynamic and constantly kept my attention. What a cool song.
“LA Skies'' starts with some earthy organ and lyrics about David Bowie which I thought were well done. This song has a more organic and rock oriented quality. It's a tender island inviting. I loved the vocals on here. The reverb works perfectly creating and otherworldly and vast sounding vocals.
These are just two of the many songs Carey has. There are plenty more to discover. I for one became a fan and think you might too if you spend some time with this artist.
