From the beginning of “Something Different” by RAHM it feels like we’re entering into a realm of music that free associates Scott Walker, Giorgio Moroder, downtempo, Flamenco and hymns. It gives the spare arrangements a subtle lushness that sounds like something that we would have heard on some European variety show in the 1970s that is unabashedly romantic and unself-aware even as the song expresses a keen sensitivity into moods and unexpressed pain of a loved one while poetically describing the moment. Perhaps the vibe is more like something out of a Sergio Leone movie that doesn’t take place in the mythical old west but instead a relationship drama in Italy. The orchestral arrangements border on the otherworldly informed by a sense of mystery like the theme song to a long lost classic film.
