Award-winning composer Marc Enfroy has released a new single titled ‘Aotearoa’, in advance of his upcoming album ‘Surrounded.’ The album was written as a mind’s eye travelogue capturing the essence of exotic locations with imagination, and impressionistic musicality. The immersive music on ‘Surrounded’ frames each location with dynamic, piano-driven, neo-classical flair. Surrounded will be first presented as a series of singles that will later be bundled as an album.
The first single, Aotearoa—which is the original name of New Zealand—mines the line between mournful and majestic, hitting that sweet spot where beauty makes you tear up. The composition opens with haunting strings before introducing a delicately stirring classical-flavored piano motif. Soon, the song takes off with an anthemic gait, winding through a sonic odyssey. “With this song, I wanted to capture the mystery and yearning for the pure essence of New Zealand,” Enfroy shares.
