by Walter Price

Parts macabre, whimsical, shadowy, and certainly intricate, the new single, “Carnival of Souls”, from West Coast Swing luminary Dutch Falconi is a wordless story about ‘the cycle of souls‘. A synonym for this composer’s version of the journeys and complexities of life. Falconi explains in a Bandcamp post, “Carnival of Souls” depicts the enduring cycle of souls as part of a grand traveling circus, one complete with joy, sorrow, love, mistakes, celebration, and imminent catastrophe. As spectacle on both a large and miniature scale, we carry on with our lives unaware we are like brightly colored fish in a vast cosmic Koi pond.”

Intriguing and off-kilter, this track goes against the grain of the conventional indie offerings of the day. And this composition is as beautiful as it is captivatingly unsettling. With every new listen, a new unexpected sound creeps into the story-line to renew your attention. And it appears that with his return, Falconi has bested himself.

“Carnival of Souls” is from the forthcoming LP, ‘Bloom & Brimstone’, due on January 29, 2021.

Existence is a beautiful, terrible, joyous, purposeful accident that replays in infinite recursive variation. I think ‘Carnival Of Souls’ illustrates just that.” – D. Falconi
