Music Monday: “In Church (Cyann & Ben Version)” by M83


Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “In Church (Ben and Cyann Version)
Artist: M83
Album: Dead Cities, Red Seas, & Lost Ghosts (2003)

“In Church (Ben and Cyann Version)” is one of the most soothing songs that I have ever come across. Featuring a repetitive, finger picked acoustic guitar over organ parts, it evokes the solemnity of winter snow falling with outside a cathedral. The song builds layer upon layer as an ethereal, female voice comes in, adding another harmony and a sense of yearning to the song’s persistent pace. Additional voices become almost discordant as the song crescendos, making short work of the seven minute run time that coerces the listener in with its subtle minimalism. This is a great song to take a walk in the snow, or sit indoors next to a fire while contemplating the beauty of winter.
