“Familiar Bell” by Historian is imbued with the full specter of the band’s musical ambiance. The song is like a sedative that sends you floating, somewhere between the ethereal past, present, and future.

Historian is instantly recognizable by the oozing melancholy whose source remains ever-elusive. In that spirit, “Familiar Bell” feels like a tribute to something familiar, something close, yet irreversibly gone, something like a dissolving memory. The song instantly induces a reflective state of mind, a sense of nostalgia, and what those reflections and nostalgia will gravitate towards depends entirely on the listener.

The "I Found You" music video does exactly what good music videos are meant to do – visually portray the feel of this stylishly simplistic and playful song.

The Soft Underground - "Ghosts" | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
The Soft Underground's "Ghosts" is reminiscent of a dark comedy/drama, letting you seamlessly take in its serious message without enveloping you with too much darkness.

Gorillaz - "Humility" Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
Bright and brilliantly embellished with tasteful touches on guitar, "Humility" sounds like sunlight should and would, if it had a sound. Wooping, warbling, sliding... It's relaxed soul and upbeat jazz jumbled up together. Great stuff and a standout among their latest releases, for sure.

Something like a surrealistic painting, it just makes you feel. It invites you to interpret it through your own prism, experience, and being, without imposing any rigid messages.

What I like the most about this spacey song, which is signature for Historian’s style altogether, is that the melancholy is not overwhelming and overly accentuated – on the contrary, it feels spontaneous, internal, and even peaceful, as if streaming naturally from the musicians’ memories and experiences. It sounds almost cathartic, bringing a quiet realization and a peace of mind.
