Sandstorm (feat. Amy Di Bartolomeo)
When Frankie Carvalho first broke the scene, it was when she wrote a poem about COVID and the suffering it causes both directly and indirectly. She soon turned the popular ode into a song that became her first single at the age of 74! With all the money going to charity, the release was Frankie's way of saying thank you to all who do vital work that never stops. The much deserved success from this project inspired Frankie Carvalho to go one step further and record a handful of tracks to put on a single release. The EP that followed is called Sandstorm and this eponymous track is the second single from the record.
Beautiful guitar begins the music with structures of chords picked out into a bouncing composition. Amy Di Bartomolmeo begins to sing, the words are about love and feelings taking us over. A drum enters, pounding on the bar with rhythmic clarity. It breaks for the chorus which washes across like the sandstorm of emotion it describes. As the chorus comes round again, keyboards fill in the spaces even further with a rich melodic harmony.
Progressive and empathic, Sandstorm is a beautiful track.
