Setting Sail, Coming Home (End Theme)
Electronic / Folk / Soundtrack / Video Game // By AJ / 16 June, 2012
A rather interesting mix of styles, this one: it blends folk with country-twang, underscored by a rather brutal electronic beat. And it sounds excellent as a result! This track featured on the end credits to the indie game Bastion (well worth checking out). The game has a wonderful, folktale-esque style throughout, with all the player’s actions narrated by a gravelly voiced storyteller. This track (and the rest of the tunes on the soundtrack) match the feel perfectly, giving it a rugged, frontier-time flavoured sound.
