This right here is the cut! I recall Quincy Jones say in an interview that the very first 5 seconds of a song is important and it has to have the power to pull you in. Well this song “First Snow” had me at the 1 second mark. The first note of the piano perked my ears up and had me paying close attention to every note, lyric, and instrument there after. This song can take the listener’s ear and travel through to their imagination. It has such a cinematic feel to it, as it has an intriguing beginning, middle and end. At the 2.35 mark of this song you can just forget it. You are gone, tuned in to the amazement of the instruments and Cobi’s Mike’s voice. It makes no damn sense for the projected lyrics “If I run away” to sound so damn good. The song beautifully fades out to the end. And that’s when I hit repeat and play it again and then pray for my very own personal maxi single with the demo version, the featured rap version, the instrumental, and the a capella version (hey don’t judge me, such a thing existed years ago). Into the Alpha make more than music to me, their music is an experience.
