Listen: KOAN Sound album teaser for Polychrome set for release 7 December
Listen to KOAN Sound “Virtual Light” off new album.
An album 3 years in the making, KOAN Sound’s latest album offering Polychrome is due for release December 7, 2018; their first release on their new label, Shoshin Records.
Polychrome can be described as versatile and highly listenable, which is the result of the maturation and personal growth of KOAN Sound’s members, Jim Bastow and Will Weeks.
While Polychrome is meant to be sonically enjoyed from start to finish (there aren’t true singles), the first song to give a glimpse into this sonic sphere is “Virtual Light.”
Listenable but work live
The band explained their ethos behind this piece of work:
“We wanted the album to be listenable but also work live at the same time – that was the hardest part. We made every track as a cinematic piece; each one tells a story. There isn’t a lot of repetition in terms of structure and arrangement, and each progresses in such a way that we can play it live in its entirety,” the band says.
