ALBUM: Music From The Soul by Thexele


Singer-songwriter and producer Thexele released a piano-focused giant instrumental album titled “Music From The Soul” on the 14th of April and currently based in Australia. 

Thexele is a multi-talented artist who went on to receive a high degree education in art and creative design, but her musical ambitions started much earlier at the young age of three years old. 

Thexele’s latest release is a culmination of her years of diverse experience, having previously released songs in various moods and genres, her latest endeavor “Music From The Soul” speaks for the artist’s personal and musical sides through a giant instrumental journey in a seventeen-track long album.

“Music From The Soul” is an evolving journey of airy and ethereal compositions, inspired by neoclassical and contemporary piano music, that takes elements from lo-fi pop, electronic synth music, and even jazz. 

Each track on the aptly titled “Music From The Soul” is a fully realized composition in its own right, but as a part of this instrumental collection, each one serves as a step in a calm and relaxing journey that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

“Raindrops” is the eighth track on the album and the first turning point from the dreamy, relaxing mood, as it immediately starts off with mystery and grounded, dark intrigue. This sudden shift exemplifies the capability of Thexele’s artistic diversity, and comes as a pleasant -if tense- surprise that marks the exact midpoint of “Music From The Soul”. The track fuses elements of electronica with contemporary classical in a cinematic fashion.

Nearing the end of the album, you can hear Thexele’s track number 14 “Fading” and it is an absolutely gorgeous composition. Thexele used minimal instrumentation on this piece in order to flex out her compositional muscles, and wow! Did she? The shorter piece is filled to the brim with ideas, from scale modulations to droning string ostinatos. “Fading” is a journey all of its own inside the larger journey of this instrumental album.

Seventeen tracks, and not one to be missed from Thexele’s epic and deeply personal upcoming opus.
