To Believe by The Cinematic Orchestra

The musical brains behind The Cinematic Orchestra, founder Jason Swinscoe and longtime musical collaborator Dominic Smith, seem to be very pleased with the general reception of their last studio release, and its opening track To Build a Home,” in particular. The overall atmosphere of the new album resembles its predecessor in many ways: the specific tempo, vocal presence, and certain harmonic patterns all add to the feeling that “To Believe” looks back to the past rather than the future. Perhaps it was the huge success of To Build a Home that influenced the ensemble's musical direction, as to this day the track recorded in collaboration with Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson features on various movies, TV, and radio programs.
