  1. Cold Rain

This track can almost be felt more than heard. The dark, warm vocals of Mazzetti feel like they’ve been there, done that, as if the singer has seen it all, and now he wants to share his wisdom with you. The backing instruments are basic but somewhat jazz-styled, and they take their time to build the music base for these vocals. Going slow, and with several effects added in there, for me the created scenery feels like walking alone through the streets of a broken city at night. “Cold Rain” is produced masterfully regarding atmospheric impact. The concept of delivering the message almost painfully slow opens the opportunity for all those single elements to shine, be it the wind instruments, the marimba-ish instruments or the synth one-shots, everything needs to be in there to draw that picture.

This track taken off the EP “Hotel, Vol. 2” is a great emotional track to let your mind wander as you listen. It’s perfect for those deep thinkers to get lost in the scenery. The concept and used elements of the song prove that less is more, that a story can be told with just the right amount of elements. I love when music has such an impact to your mind. While other one-hit starlets will be forgotten right after you heard them, Mazzetti will be remembered wandering down these cold dark roads for a long time.

Lyrics

Cold rain falling
All is dark but storming
The trees split, they scream and crack
And the thunder’s wail breaks their backs
And the cats all hide in mothers’ barn
The sleeping ghosts can still do harm
And you run out to the night
Soaked in the rain yet dressed all white
You fall to your knees and moan
Your always screaming when you’re alone

But baby, I was your lover
Baby, I was your soul
Please don’t find another
It’s just I’ve love you so long

All that glass you held in your hand
Tight as you did, I don’t understand
You let it fall to the cliffs down below
And I watched it shatter and I watched it go

But baby, I was your lover
I held you closer than me
And I can’t remember
How to lose what I can’t even see

Baby, I was your lover
Baby, I was your song
Please don’t find another
It’s just I’ve loved you so long
