Thus Far is a young talented rock band, making official releases since 2020. Their latest release, Silver Cord, is currently the most popular release they have on their Spotify page, and I wanted to give this band the credit they deserve.
First of all, Silver Cord is an exciting song, stands out with its richness and dynamics above everything else. It’s unbelievable when you think about how many pieces came together to create this magnificent piece of art.
Apparently, Thus Far is mainly influenced by modern math-rock progressive rock bands, showing the identity of these specific genres in their technicality and musicality together. As I said earlier, the composition here is quite complex, has no breathing space all along the way, feels endless even though the song is only 3:55. The energy level is also powerful, penetrating every single layer possible while listening.
The band shows potential also with their instrumentation and ideas. Very complex music to compose and perform. They have got layers of instruments, vocal lines, and additional instruments. I am not a math-rock person myself, yet I enjoy listening to their special pieces. In this case, Silver Cord is a powerful dynamo, a successful example of it.
