Canadian singer-songwriter Jasper Sloan Yip has treated us to a stunning new single ‘The Day Passed & The Sun Went Down’.
It’s a gorgeous track, showcasing Jasper’s incredible voice set against simplistic but infectious melodies. The song allows the perfect amount of room to breathe, rising to big crescendos, before falling back to the minimalism that highlights the Jasper’s vocals – the true showpiece of the song.
The video is also visual feast, beginning with the same cinematic orchestration which opens Jasper’s upcoming album, before leading directly into the song itself. This makes the clip close to seven minute in duration, but it’s well worth watching all the way though, as it was shot during the recent eclipse on the north-west coast of the USA.
Jasper masterfully blends folk, rock and pop overtones, creating a unique sound that has earned him critical acclaim in his home nation.
Speaking of his upcoming album Post Meridiem, Jasper says:
“Continuing the pattern of my previous releases, ‘Post Meridiem’ is a self-portrait. Or rather, a series of vignettes that, when considered together, give a sense of the whole. It is reflective by design; a distorted recollection of one’s own life created with the hope that listeners will see some part of themselves somewhere in the hazy patch-work narrative put before them.”
‘The Day Passed & The Sun Went Down’ is taken from Jasper Sloan Yip’s forthcoming album Post Meridiem, which is available from 27th October 2017.
