As the darkness creeps in, 1st Base Runner's latest offering, "Night Stalker," illuminates the night with its aesthetical soundscape. This EP is a symphony of the gloaming, cinematic journey through the mind of the infamous Nightstalker. The four tracks on the album are a tour de force of sound, with each one designed to transport listeners to a world of mystery.
The album is a feast of synths, and each melody is simply enchanting, pulling you in and holding you captive. With four tracks, each one is guaranteed to become a favorite. The harmonies on this EP are truly a work of art, with each song building upon the last, some bright, some dark, and some in between. The opener, "In the Neighborhood," is an absolute showstopper, with its bewitching synths and vocals that will have you fully engrossed from the very first note.
"Night Stalker" is a dark and complex work of art, filled with mysterious melodies and chill-inducing soundscapes. Despite its simplicity, the album manages to capture the essence of fear, as if the Nightstalker himself is pursuing you. The spooky light keys and bass send shivers down my spine, particularly when 1st Base Runner starts singing the lyrics as if he's talking directly to you. It will have you totally immersed in the album, feeling as though you are experiencing every moment firsthand.
"The Serpent and Space" takes you on a trip through the unknown, with its dark, and chill ambiance. The production is top-notch, with stunning chord progressions that provide a laid-back vibe, but still, the eeriness remains.
"Dark Drive through the Canyon" is a slow-burning masterpiece, starting with a mesmerizing guitar intro that builds to a climax. The haunting guitars and haunting melody will keep you on your toes, and before you know it, you'll be enthralled in the dark and cool atmosphere.
I cannot express enough gratitude to 1st Base Runner for this fascinating album that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
"Night Stalker" is a must-listen, and I highly recommend following 1st Base Runner for future releases. Stream the album now on Spotify, and lose yourself in the dark and mysterious world of "Night Stalker."
