Atmosphere. By God there's some of it floating around at the start of "Soak", the new track from Liverpool's Cavalry.
Special. Makes you feel part of something, or something that's about to be. Something you want to stick around for. A touch of Elbow album-opener about it, or "New York Morning".
Confident. To place elements far enough apart to act independently, but close enough to react together without being forced. To build a story and a momentum, then change it up at the halfway point and do it all again.
