Ben Browning – Bullet Island

May 9, 2012

This song is rated: 2 Pills – intermediate musicologist level

Hi there, Dr. Whuzzerface here,

Have you ever experienced that moment of elation when you’re listening to a song and the feelings you experience whisks you away to a delicious childhood memory? That is exactly what this song did/does to me. Ben Browning is the bassist of the delectable band Cut Copy and in March released his own solo album “Lover Motion”, much to my delight. You might hear a heavy influence from Ben in C.C.’s songs after listening to Ben’s solo album, but there is enough of a difference between the two as well to make it a fresh, new experience.

Back to the memories: Bullet Island is a purely synthesized dreamscape instrumental journey. The intro and initial build up take a while, but don’t get impatient, every keyboard note is important. The real drive and magic of the song starts at 1:14, where the keyboard starts breaking it down and picking it up to the pinnacle at 1:23, where you finally crest the precipice and take flight on your very own flying good luck dragon. Yup, Never Ending Story is the memory that keeps flashing back whenever I listen to this song. I strongly suggest that you close your eyes once you get to that point in the song, what memories does it chock up for you?

I hope you enjoy it, and please leave a comment telling me about which childhood moment this song stirs!
