Falling (Paatos, 2006)

This Swedish prog (or post-prog, as some say now) band was born as an offspring of Landberk and rapidly became a successful act. This song, taken from the album "Silence of Another Kind", is a good example of their production: gloomy, slow tempo, atmospheric and featuring Petronella Nettelmalm's hypnotic, melancholic vocals.

Paatos protecting themselves from the Swedish winter.

Her whispering voice flows on the freezing keyboards and some beautiful acoustic guitar chords. The melody is well written and charming, perfectly fitting with the mellotron sond. Despite the northern crepuscular mood, this song is deep and moving like a children's fairy tale. I highly recommend it to all the sweetest prog lovers out there.
