Soulitaire releases second single from upcoming 'I Believe In Rainbows'

By Alex Brown - 29.10.17

Soulitaire is ready for round two with “One Of Many Parts”, the next track to be lifted from his upcoming LP (10th November) via Violet Noise Records. This, after previous single “New Breed” received recent support from fashion and music UK publication Noctis Mag as well as Amazing Radio’s Charlie Ashcroft’s Show delivering Soulitaire’s velvet-esque voice alongside his jazzy guitar sound with the optimism and enthusiasm for which the artist is quickly becoming renowned for.

After releasing nine albums with three different bands, Martin Rotheneder one day found an old guitar with only four strings left sitting in the corner of a room. He picked it up and minutes later a song was written and recorded on his phone with the whole idea for a new moniker (Soulitaire) laid out in his mind: vocals and guitar, nothing else needed.

With influences as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Keziah Jones, Pat Metheny and Miles Davis, Soulitaire manages to tug on your heart strings with his percussive guitar technique, releasing a softness in the strumming and a natural loop of hand beats -  bass vibrating off his instrument. His sound is reminiscent of Newton Faulkner or Ben Howard and breathes off a well balanced weight between the classic and the contemporary, evoking a charm in the relationship between the vocals and harmony.

New single ‘One Of Many Parts’ could be best described as a sincere vow of harmony; an ambitious message of unity or a wake up call drenched in inspiration. Crisp acoustic guitars are strummed and struck against a heartbeat-centered drum pattern, as Rotheneder’s velvet-esque voice fills the air as autumn turns to winter.

Of the single ‘One Of Many Parts’, Soulitaire had this to say: "It's true what they say in the "About a Boy" movie, that no man is an island. Say we're all connected and what one does will have an effect on others. This will mean we have a huge responsibility with every action we take. It means we're "one of many parts" and in that much more powerful than we might believe ourselves to be."
