I have this thing for songs that do not make the album.
Here’s one of my favorite songs from Sleepwalk Circus’ front man, Francis Lorenzo (as The Ringmaster), that didn’t make the cut on his upcoming new album, ‘Delusions of Reference‘.
Never did I imagine that a couple dancing flamboyantly around home appliances would send me to a dreamlike trance. Every sound, beat, layer, and word is well placed – which makes what seems like a vintage commercial for domestic appliances – the best thing I have watched in ages.
Francis Lorenzo adeptly applies the ‘Delusion of Reference’ – a term in Psychiatry that refers to ‘a belief that environmental events are meant specifically for them.’ – which only showcases The Ringmaster’s set of skillfully delivered tricks under his canopy of shaped, lush, and masterful melodies.
