snir yamin - urban stories
If I close my eyes, I can almost envision a young Snir Yamin with a guitar in hand, one leg propped, playing for a square full of enamored ladies clutching at their hearts and slowly swaying from left to right. His Urban Stories EP contains three beautiful, very sweet songs, all carried with his very strong voice.
There are four main elements that appear all throughout the EP that really give the music character: the cello, the guitar, the piano, and last but certainly not least, the vocals. The accompanying instruments are kept in the background but are still rather powerful. “Missed Love” introduces us to the cello, the guitar and the vocals, though the cello is kept as more of an aural accent. I have to admit as much as I enjoyed the song it was a bit jarring to hear him say the word “fuck” amongst the angelic overtones of the song.
“Top of the World” brings really pretty piano tones into the fray, which adds punctuation to the guitar chords. This is only a taste of his piano proficiency, however; “Stay” develops that sound and shows an impressively deep song that seems to come directly from his very soul.
This EP is almost like a fairy tale; it’s almost impossible to hear the stories of love without wanting to be swept into the arms of a suitor and held until the end of time. I am intrigued by the sheer musicianship contained within these songs, and how well each instrument and part worked with each other; now that I’ve heard the love songs, I am very interested in hearing some of his other work and seeing what else he has created. If you are in the mood for some very sweet, lovely tunes, definitely spin this three track EP – and if you’re trying to woo some ladies, it’s really a good idea to throw this on.
