Hushed whisper, raging dissonance, swooning melody... The Soil & The Sun become more intentional, more powerful, and more humbling each album. On Meridian, a growing use of digital soundscapes and effects complement their previous mastery of wood, wire and air instrumentation. Lyrically, the group continues with their prophetic substance under an approachable veil. Alex and co. call out evil by name on "Samyaza," beg for peace on "How Long,"and bring the listener to joy in mystery on "Are You?"
