‘Enchanted Autumn’ see a return to Steve Orchard’s meditative, classically influenced musical style. The album opens with the gently drifting, synth laden ‘Puddles’, recalling the best of 90’s UK space music. It sets the tone for a gentle, drifting album of expertly crafted acoustic, symphonic music. Tracks like ‘Out of Season’, Elusive Sun’, the delicately synth laden October Moon’ and ‘Opaque Days’ are stand-out tracks that highlight Steve’s penchant for more earthy musical connections. The album is, of course, a clear homage to Autumn. Indeed, the feel of the music is quite definitely ‘autumnal’ – in a good way – that reflects dimming summer memories and the onset of winter. Guitar and piano are more to the fore than recent albums, with gentle synths taking more of a backseat. But the excellent string arrangements and poignant feel throughout make this a very classy offering.
