Negative Space from Mason Summit is the perfect breakup album that goes through a wave of emotions through vocals and mind-bending guitar. The ten-track album uses reverse storytelling order to express emotional highs and lows of a relationship.
“Doomed From The Start” mixes heartbreaking lyrics with light guitar and piano. This is one of those songs that I would listen to while driving on the road.
“Asterisk” reminds me of influences of David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Dark, melodic, and spares instrumentals help to drive the tension of the beautiful voice.
“Better Place” blows up the album extremely wide open with aggressive and passionate guitar playing throughout.
“How does It End?” creates this dreamy and whimsical atmosphere with such beautiful violin and acoustic guitar. It helps to create mystery and another element to the album.
“Cause for Concern” and “Point Doom” feels like something that you would hear in a James Bond film. Light and joyful musical instrumentals while the song itself is about the chaos and madness that is going on around him.
“‘Round January” is a perfect ending to the album helping to create this arc from sadness and depress sadness over a breakup to pure happiness and hope for the future and love. Both acoustic and electric guitar builds this harmony that feels like to love partners finally coming together.
Mason Summit tells one of the most beautiful and dreamy albums that I have heard in a while. Through guitar and violin, Mason helps to tell a story about heartbreak and finding love again. This takes you back to 60s rock and roll music that helps find joy through the pain and sadness of a heartbreaking relationship.
