In May 2017, Californian producer Xan Griffin began a series of songs named for zodiac signs. Since he started with “Gemini,” he’s gone on to produce “Cancer,” “Leo,” “Virgo” and “Libra,” followed by his latest: “Scorpio.”
“Scorpio” is a transcendent, almost cinematic experience. A minute-long introduction ushers the listener into the latest zodiac installment with a simple melody that gradually builds into a bass-backed rendition of the same theme. At the halfway mark, the listener is introduced to the sweet, enticing vocals of Romy Wave. The vocalist’s heartfelt lyrics add another layer to the already emotional track, helping craft the entrancing soundscape Xan Griffin’s built.
Each zodiac release, though wildly different from the last, carries over an emotion-packed theme that ties the series together.
