Review of Tea in China by Misty Miller
‘Tea In China‘ is a track based around guitars. With a heavy guitar opening the track, it feels dark and mysterious. The tone of Misty Miller also follows the themes suggested by the guitar and sticks within a strict vocal range to keep the sense of mystery. Occasionally there are burst of drums and more distorted guitars which keep the momentum up just in time when they’re needed.
However you may think about the first two minutes, the songs has a brilliant guitar ending which makes use of an array of guitars and effects in a massive note range. The ending is very climatic and possibly the best ending I’ve heard in 2013 as it doesn’t fall flat at all.
The vocals are good however over the daunting and strong guitars its hard to hear and cleverly written lyrics and for some, two minutes of eerie silence may not be worth the wait. But trust me, it is.
