"Sonder" is the cost of chasing a dream.
I release "Sonder" at midnight on my one year anniversary in Los Angeles, CA – a year that has been so painfully transformative I'm not sure I can elucidate much greater than this song.
"Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root:
pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance; it means
to suffer." -Mark Danielewski
I wrote "Sonder" at rock bottom. The mental plight that accompanies the pursuit of passion can be as equally destructive as it is fulfilling.
An individual's purpose (and moreover, turmoil) is as unique as the genetic code from which it is extracted. As I pondered this, a sense of morose engulfed me. I will never fully understand anyone's motives, dreams, desires, reasoning – as they forever exist in a foreign realm.
This notion awoke a sense of self-awareness.
I am only myself. I am the keeper of my fortune. I have the power to respond to doubt, fear, rejection, and failure on my own accord.
So I did. As much as "Sonder" is about agonizing turbulence, its fruition reveals a light in the dark."
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
