A well known musical style is a song that builds, the classic composers did it and it is still a method used to great effect today. Below are two different examples, and songs that I love.
Going straight for the epic this is one of Woodkid’s finest (also check out I Love You if you like this). You know this is going to end up on a grand scale, but when it comes it’s immensely satisfying.
Song: Run Boy Run – Artist: Woodkid
Not to the same scale, but shortlisted for a Mercury Music Award you’re not quite sure where this is going to go which makes the track surprising as well as enjoyable.
Song: Heaven, How Long – Artist: East India Youth
