Sanctum promises to be a unique track from the very beginning, starting with repetitive chopped vocals that are joined by a chorus of echoes as the rolling bass drops in, followed by a heavy synth that rises rapidly and takes the listeners on an extreme trip into the heavens. Immediately crashing down, the synth gives way for a dark cello melody, which is quickly answered by a piano piece, before an entire string orchestra joins the foray. Leading to the return of the synth that rushes higher and higher, it comes back down and goes back up and back down again – where the piano returns for a brief moment and finally rushes back up, taking the listeners on an uncertain emotional journey, grasping and taking control of their hearts.
