Nathan Felix's "Broken Down The Walls"

This week’s synch song of the week comes as part of a much larger symphonic work composed by Austin native Nathan Felix. “Broken Down The Walls” is the 3rd movement of Felix’s debut 6-part symphony, The Curse The Cross & The Lion.

According to the composer, the dramatic score took eight years to compose while Felix traveled the world with his “indie-rock orchestra, The Noise Revival Orchestra.” Felix claims to have been inspired by his travels “throughout Scandinavia, the Faroe Islands, China, the USA, & Europe,” and brings many elements from his trips to his symphony.

The “brooding yet elegant” 3rd movement is beloved by Felix’s fans for its raw texture, dark strings and unsettling tones, we think--like one of his fans noted--that this piece would work great as underscore in an action flick a la Batman. Although, our favorite tag from the artist’s Soundcloud is simply “Awesome,” and he’s right.

The symphony was most recently recognized at the BBC Music Video Festival this past holiday season, and continues to gain recognition around the world. “Broken Down The Walls” is a versatile piece with exciting movement and a subtle darkness that sounds sort of like a Hans Zimmer/Danny Elfman offspring. Definitely check out the rest of his symphony, as well as his indie orchestra!

 Also, stay tuned to his Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Tumblr accounts for the latest (we heard he’s working on a new album--exciting stuff)!

We’re so excited to welcome Nathan Felix as one of the many excellent artists we work with at The SongHunters!

"This book had a direct impact on my career. From the multiple books that I have read on building a career in the music industry, this book is the most eye opening, informative, and useful of them all. It is akin to taking the brains and experience of fifty music industry vets and inserting them directly into your head."  –Adam A. Johnson
