Words From the Wise is about the roads that life sets before us, and the choices we make to define ourselves. As a band Eleven North are currently wrapping things up in studio and are excited to be releasing a full length album in the new year. The single, “Words From The Wise” with the same title was an easy choice for the band with its big sound, explosive energy and a message that reminds us to be more selfless in our choices. Eleven North have been working on creating an unparalleled and highly entertaining live show that they can share with their listeners. This year they are sharing the stage with artists such as: Juno winner Dear Rouge, Australia's The Lazy’s, West Coast Music winner Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, East Coast Music winner Andy Brown, and Edge Next Big Thing winner Ivory Hours.
In the beggining of 2016, Kalouv has made a tour in Brazil going throught ten cities in several regions of the country. During the stay in São Paulo, the group was invited to the Converse Rubber Tracks project, which was a whole day free to record in one of the most well equipped recording spaces of the city, called Family Mob Studio. Two tracks were recorded and finalized in Recife at the CODA Studio by the hands of the producer Roberto Kramer who mixed and mastered the tracks.
The outcome of the recordings is a compact disk nominated Planar Sobre o Invisível (Soar Over the Invisible – English translation). This new work is a preview of the upcoming new album that should be released in 2017. The cover is signed by the Brazilian artist Alexandre Palacio which perfectly translates the band’s inspiration in the tracks Peixe Voador and Da Bravura, Inocência such as in games, movies and comic books, creating soundtracks to their own universes.
Separate Grooves (release date Nov. 2) is on the rock end with pretty singing, vintage keys inspired, and 90s -ish sounding distorted guitars (and a couple acoustic thrown in).
Some themes explored on the album besides loss/love (Miss Invisible, Separate Grooves, Working for You) - airline travel (TSA Patdown), the affordable housing crisis (Tenement Cove), and self-funded artists (Wanting In).
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
