Soar is a touching and intimate composition that has Michael Pinder refresh the singer-songwriter style from the late 1990s into something vibrant and contemporary. There’s considerable musical harmonies that are established by Michael’s vocals here, adding a further level of complexity to the composition. When the strings and percussive elements are inserted into the track, Soar is able to climb to an entirely new plateau. There are so many distinct things occurring by the two-minute mark that one will have to play the single multiple times before they can hear every dynamic that is present. Soar is an evolutionary leap forward for Pinder.
We covered Pinder’s So Confused back in 2018.
