TUNE VULIN - Distorted Silence
This debut single sees the Scottish artist burst onto the scene with a stunning song that begins intimately with acoustic guitar and MacLeod’s strong yet poignant voice, but then suddenly transforms into a dramatic anthemic track lifted beautifully by epic strings, lush sweeping melodic lines and textures, atmospheric percussion and a hauntingly cathartic vocal arrangement. Distorted Silence showcases VULIN’s talent for songwriting and production, as well as, his depth of lyrical content. Distorted Silence was written and produced by MacLeod, but includes featured musicians Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow) and Graeme Smillie (Arab Strap, Emma Pollock, etc.), alongside contributions from former Dante members, Stuart Hosking, Euan McLaughlin and Seán McLaughlin. This record was a culmination of musicians writing and recording remotely due to the pandemic, but was produced and mixed by MacLeod, and mastered by Guy Davie (The Smiths, Björk, Mogwai, The Shins, Sigur Rós, etc).
