Ben Rath – Alight

A powerful and emotional piece from Manchester artist Ben Rath. This track “Alight”, taken from his album All In Good Time, feels beautifully dressed as the torment of a man waiting on the edge of battle, with a fear of the unknown and an anguish for the future. The piece feels drowned in trepidation, building to an unknown destination and, appropriately, never fully resolving.  Interestingly Rath gives due credit to Hakobune, one of our favorites here at polishdownpour, and it’s no stretch of the imagination to see the kinship of their music.
