Shine (downloadable single)
Take a look deep within yourself, find your brightest star and shine...
Shine was the first ever guitar oriented track written by Josip Pesut. All the other compositions before it were orchestrations or electronic music. That incomplete demo got rounded up by other members of Through Infinity almost 10 years later and got turned into powerful instrumental single.
"This track Shine is taken their debut album The Life, which was a long time in coming to final fruition and contains eleven tracks. Shine is a perfect showcase for the band’s unique sound and musical abilities. You can detect the influence of great guitarists like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, as well as the instrumental music of artists like Yanni and the Japanese instrumental band The Black Mages.
Starting with swirling synths, combined with powerful bursts of guitar and drums, its first main section centres around a rolling bassline and syncopated drums. A sparse guitar line weaves over the top, then becomes much more expansive in the second section, which rhythmically alternates between halftime and full time. There is some mellifluous high-end lead guitar, which is tightly structured and melodic rather than a gratuitous display of virtuosity.
This progresses to sections where synth and bass play in tandem then combine with the guitars in glorious harmony. The drumming throughout is superb, full of nuance and tasteful fills. integrating perfectly with the rest of the music. Through Infinity understand that there is more musical power in synergy rather than individual virtuosity, though the whole group are extremely accomplished musicians." - review by The Faulkner Review
