Single Review–A Walking Stranger (Monster Taxi)
Traveling With Music – A Virtual Journey To An Exotic World
Our busy life has robbed our precious time for many lovely things we may otherwise be able to indulge in. I would rather place recreational trips on top of the list I am talking about. Vacations and tours have become fewer in number and we all definitely long for them. However, we are always ready with a pile of reasons when asked why we have not embarked on one.
Without having to apply for a leave, what if someone takes you on a trip to venture into a world you have not known to exist? The idea sounds irresistible! Isn’t it? Then you must listen to the single ‘A Walking Stranger’ by Monster Taxi. This is one-of-a-kind music that will rouse your spirit and send it on a virtual voyage to an exotic world.
About the title of the single, I felt this way. Most times, we see the world through the perceptive glasses we have manufactured for ourselves. Therefore, often our outlook and understanding are clouded and far from revealing the true picture. Unless we alienate ourselves from our little selves, it is impossible to gain a fresh view of the world.
To me, the title ‘A Walking Stranger’ suggests the importance of pursuing any experience from an objective or third-person perspective. To discover what the artist conveys through the music, we must drop the suits we are wearing to change for the one the maestro provides us while choosing to travel with this song.
‘A Walking Stranger’ plays just for 3:36 minutes. You play it and within a few seconds, the tempo and pitch rise to the summit the song touches and stays there till the end. With the steady flow of synths and percussive rhythms, your mind drifts to explore new horizons. The accompanying video is undoubtedly meticulous work in syncing with the theme of the song. However, personally, I discovered an immersive experience when I listened to the song without any visual distractions. In this way, I would say the song achieves its intended purpose in full.
The composer has done a phenomenal job in ideating this song and giving it a formal suit to do the job of a virtual tourist guide. The carefully chosen sounds, notes, and rhythms of ‘A Walking Stranger’ will effortlessly transport you to distant lands. The result is a refreshing journey that will recharge you and leave you spellbound for some time with great energy and a positive state of mind. And, this is one of the best reasons why we turn to music. I hope you agree with me on this. So, go forward and listen to this single to understand what I have penned in this review.
