It’s a curious thing. All the shades of green. Plants. Water. The absolute necessities of life. Music, too, is an absolute necessity. To capture both color and sound in a bottle to put atop a piano like a houseplant. A clock. A fern. Synesthesia. These songs are meant for that. To close your eyes and see green. To drown in the color of piano. Drawing influence from the psyche of Bill Evans’ Rhodes and Koji Kondo’s synthesizers, Shades of Green is a melancholic covey that pulls hard on the heart strings musically and lyrically, brushed over with a plethora of improvisation in smooth watercolors.
