lead vocalist and drummer Calen Trentini on “Carry A Light.”
“This song explores the mental burden of regret and longing that follows a painful separation. It captures that familiar bump in the road that we’ve all experienced when one’s eagerness to move on is stunted by memories and romantic withdrawals of what has been left behind.”
The lyrical themes of “Carry a Light” are enhanced by its eclectic musical production. Using a pure alternative rock foundation as an artistic canvas, Trentini and bandmates Adam Wilson, Spencer Daley, and Daniel Ponich further developed the framework of the song with electronic layers, tenacious hooks, and strong vocals. The additional expertise of Di Pomponio and Worsley ultimately reinforced the band’s goal of leading listeners through a primal alt-rock experience with a clear emotional resonance.
Trentini sums it up this way, “Our artistic integrity is based on authenticity and simplicity. We build our songs from scratch with only our own instruments. What you’ll hear with this release and our slate for 2019 is exactly what you’ll get from us on stage. We’re excited to join the new era of alt-rock bands and make our mark with what we believe is fresh and original.”
