This is the thrid single release from th band and ia follow up to their September 13, release of Dolly and other unfinished business is the second official Broken Heart Syndrome. He started singing at the age of 5 years old when he ed his Kindergarten choir and has enjoyed being an entertainer ever since. During this time, he knew that singing would be a part of his everyday life. His versatile range of influences vary from hip-hop to folk to classic rock. Adam first took up the piano at age 4 at the behest of his parents and thus began the endless curiosity that led him to learn any instrument he could get his hands on, be it guitar, banjo, drums, or bass.
Adam ly played bass for The Creepy Jingles. Misha is currently in the studio working on her solo album. She recently released this song as a you Tube Video.
Misha plays with the band The Freedom Affair. Beyond simply the lyrics, they have added sonic textures that have not ly been explored, thanks to the addition of guitarist Bradley McKellip, bassist Colin Jones, and keyboardist and vocalist Heidi Gluck. Drummer Jim Piller and guitarist Kris Losure have returned as solid mainstays of the band. Guest appearances from lap steel player Mike Stover, pianist Dan Loftus, and vocalist Chase Horseman widen the sonic spectrum even further. Combining his poetic and lyrical talents with a soulful voice, Soultru has forged his own unique sound.
The title track opens the EP as a voyage into soundtrack dreams and sonic imagery. The song builds and builds over 10 minutes, introducing a bevy of interplaying elements and melodies. Mikal leans into the vocals with gentle whispers as Lucas plucks the atmosphere. Meanwhile, Matthew Heinrich merges live drums with the programmed ones until he is one with the machines. The combo is locked-in, as skittering drums, cosmic synths, spacious noise guitars, and a pensive bass riff promise a way out.
The diagram becomes a map, and this is how we find an escape. Invoking the imagery of a late night journey through a cold war Berlin, the synthesizers sizzle and crash and beat against the wall, as the music searches for s of light and freedom across dark urban landscapes.
