Sam Halls new album as ghost orchard, rainbow music, is a collage of patience and meditation. Its filled with nuances as quietly imperceptible as the seasons, or the profound movement of time, where one day looking back you realize your whole spirit has shifted. Where 2019s critically revered bunny was a love letter to a romantic relationship, rainbow music documents the culmination of Halls first personal experience with loss in several forms. At the end of 2020, his longterm childhood pet passed away, and with it the last continuing threads of familiarity between being a kid and adulthood. Still based in the Grand Rapids, Michigan town hed grown up in, the static ease of familiar living seemed to be coming apart at the seams, as friends moved on to bigger cities, relationships shape shifted and in a short period of time, another kitten hed adopted passed away prematurely, leaving Hall to question the trajectory in which he himself was headed.

Like songs in the key of life, the title rainbow musicrefers to the myriad of colors and qualities within Hall that are refracted throughout. Its a symbolization of hope and the aftermath, the flickering light at the end of the tunnel (orwhen a rainbow shows up after a big storm). Wish I could have fun anymore, Hall ruminates on dancing, as well as confessing he wish he made more upbeat bangers. But reality packs more of a punch, and this collection of songs sees him finally be at peace with the current state of affairs.Relatable to anyone who has contemplated what it means to settle down, or even just catch your breath in an era where anguish is commonplace, the release of rainbow musicis a happy ending in its own right, a marker of survival that remains close to the bone.
