The vastity of the ocean, a piano in the middle of a green sea of grass, and some young boys playing ring-around-the-rosy. This is what I see when I listen to Pern. The track rises and falls beautifully, becoming touching and uplifting at the same time.
While the left hand rhythmically gives the time through the chords, the right hand plays a sweet melody that makes you think about freedom. If I focus on music, I instantly get transported in the middle of a road surrounded by a vast field of sunflowers.
It’s the birdsong and background sounds that get you at the beginning – the scrunching through gravel accompanied by the sparsest piano chords and the whole mood is set.
