Alec Berlin adds to his growing catalog of rock guitar instrumentation with his new track, Man’s Best Friend. With a run time of a little over five minutes, the track takes the listener through a gorgeous sonic landscape. His guitar work is impeccable as usual and charged with his elegant artistic vision. And as we journey through this purposeful craft, with its reverberating textures and mountainous sonic washes, it makes for a very rewarding listen. 

Much like all his releases, the song is instrumental and its reach goes places that words cannot fully articulate. Opening with soft and sunny acoustics, the track is built into a fiery riff wall. Its undulating rhythm overlaps with tight melody ripples to form a swirling mass of sound. Splashy electrified bass lines rise into the atmosphere, guided into the rhythm by boxy beats. 

What is fantastic about the formation is how it goes from zero to a hundred, both in terms of emotion and sound. And the listener is driven to the euphoric peaks of sentiment and emotion. The song touches on old school sounds, reminiscent of artists like The Beatles and The Smiths in its soft, melodic moments and bands like Radiohead and The Rolling Stones in its visceral and raw displays. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
