Kacie Thomas – Goodbye (Part 1) – Single Review

Kacie Thomas is a US ghost-wave creator.

Having recently decided to pursue, what has always been a passion, musicianship after a different earlier career path Kacie Thomas only has a few songs around, each cloaked in sweeping brushed vocal.

I am a little late to this, my apologies, Goodbye (Part 1) was sent to me a few weeks ago. The combinations of the mournful piano shrouded by a synthesised vocal which is shadowed in echoing elongation gives the song an ethereal other-worldliness. Extending to just over four minutes the track, despite its spaciousness doesn’t feel greedy of time, with the listener becoming immersed in the soundtrack.

It will be interesting to hear where Kacie Thomas heads next as the songs thus far revealed are all based around the same theme.

Christian Gibson

A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) that drifts through the room in atmospheric layering.

A variety of themes are explored in the dreamy collection of songs, with each having its own distinctive sense of being as a diversity of instrumentation, electronica and percussion melt one in to the other. My selection being the fourth – A Castle For Wolves.
