Artist: The Brilliance

Single: World Keeps Spinning

Rating: 4 stars

Overview: Following on the heels of Suite No 1 Oh Dream, The Brilliance is back with new concept record Suite No 2 World Keeps Spinning: An Antidote to Modern Anxiety. First single “World Keeps Spinning” sounds like latter day Beatles, struggling against the pervasive loneliness we feel in a world where social media passes as community, and we wonder if we can ever love each other. 

Yet it’s a hopeful song, positing that true community can provide a balm against anxiety and disillusionment. 

I wanna hear the song of peace / Would you sing it over me?
Can you help me to speak though I stutter?” 

Their signature orchestral pop benefits from a mashup of classical pieces like Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, and Stravinsky’s Firebird. The layers provide texture while thrusting the listener forward like an intricate story plot that is racing toward conclusion.
