Heaven Is Attached by A Slender Thread by The One AM Radio // Album Review


Heaven Is Attached by A Slender Thread By The One Am Radio.

The One Am Radio can be described as a Folk-electronic. Composer and songwriter Hrishikesh Hirway chill vocals and ambient up-beat arrangements make The One Am Radio’s latest effort ‘Heaven Is Attached by A Slender Thread’ catchy yet well worth a listen. This album musically has less the singer songwriter vibe more intricate electronic arrangements but still a soft ambient feel. Lyrically The One Am Radio songs are mostly about experiences or thoughts from a personal perspective. Also lyrically it’s never as straight forward for you to think ‘wow this is a great love song’ but it mostly captures the feeling of love, loss or separation. I find that the songs are self-reflective and honest. All the songs also seem to have a quaint melodic essence that keeps you swaying while letting you submerse into almost gritty and personal reality.

I am finding it hard to pick a song from this album that is my favourite mainly because it depends on the mood I wish to revel in but the immediate stand outs are ‘In A City Without Seasons’ & ‘Everything Falls Apart’ for its dance-worthiness. Also ‘Sunlight’ & ‘The Heat’ because it’s immediate idea to be on a summertime jams compliation. And listen to ‘Everyone But You’ & ‘Ticking Heart’ when you’ve been letting that certain someone get under your skin.
