“Tightrope” is the third track on Duo Del Sol’s new debut album, hello Kaleidoscope. It takes a certain skill to produce instrumental music that offers something new and different and remains something pleasing and entrancing
Duo Del Sol’s debut LP has several songs that achieve just that. Band members, Tom Farrell on the guitar and Javier Orman on the violin, work together using their instruments in unconventional ways to create unconventional sounds and songs.
The band reigns from Venice Beach, California but have been all over the map gathering musical experiences. Orman is originally from Israel but grew up in the Montevideo, Uruguay, a port-city. Farrell got his start in Chicago, on make-shift instruments.
Over time the two came to find a voice as a duo. The music they produce allows each of them to showcase their true skills without overpowering one another. They fit seamlessly together, making beautiful compositions.
This LP sounds almost Latin-inspired at times, but you can hear some beach inspired sounds in the tracks too.
