PAPADOSIO–a must-see act on the touring and festival circuits that’s hailed as a “tour-de-force” by ThatDrop.com (7/10/15)–has returned with their first new music in a year. “Glimpse Of Light”–the first single off the band’s forthcoming full-length studio album EXTRAS IN A MOVIE, due out October 2–is out now on all digital retailers and available instantly to those that pre-order the album. The genre-melding collective is also preparing to launch their massive fall headlining tour “Extras In A Movie – Act I,” beginning September 29 in Urbana, IL; tickets are on-sale now at http://papadosio.com/tour.
To coincide with the release of “Glimpse Of Light,” the Asheville, NC-based group has partnered with MusicTimes.com to premiere the official music video for the track, directed by the band’s own Anthony Thogmartin. Watch the “Glimpse Of Light” video now here.
The hauntingly beautiful and mesmerizing visuals coincide with the song’s powerful message. The band explains, “‘Glimpse Of Light’ is pretty much a love song written to everyone in the world. It’s about recognizing that we all share the same struggles and personal battles but also all have the potential to change. Sometimes this realization hits people really hard, especially when they learn to love their enemies. That is why the song has a harder edge.”
PAPADOSIOAnthony Thogmartin (lead vocal, guitar, production), Mike Healy (drums), Rob McConnell (bass, vocals), Billy Brouse (keys, synth, vocals) and Sam Brouse (keys, guitar, vocals)–seamlessly melds progressive rock with psychedelia; folk with electronica; and dance music with jam. The five-piece has earned worldwide acclaim for their unpredictable set lists, entrancing improvisations and stunning visuals as a result of their extensive touring schedule and numerous high-profile festival appearances, including Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Counterpoint, Sonic Bloom, Summer Camp and many more.
With their fourth full-length studio release EXTRAS IN A MOVIE, PAPADOSIO reveals a striking cinematic cornucopia of sounds: orchestral, electronic, organic, acoustic, psychedelic and celestial. The 16 selections that comprise the song cycle are concise and structured – launch pads for the improvisational excursions that are a hallmark of the band’s celebrated concert performances.
Early media reaction the new music is overwhelmingly positive. Here’s what’s being said:
“From the lush Four Freshmen harmonies of ‘The Last Leaf,’ Papadosio reveals a multi-hued tapestry of sonic invention…here the quintet draws from prog-rock forefathers with vocals, guitars and a pronounced backbeat prominent in the orchestral mix. ‘The Wrong Nostalgia,’ and its swipe at the market-share programming of modern radio, contrasts with the hallucinatory expression of ‘Ritual.’ The closer, ‘Moon Entendre,’ offers reassurance with the line, ‘There’s magic in every ride.’ Indeed: Papadosio’s cinematic palette and compositional alchemy defines a band both earthy and cerebral.
–Dan Kimpel, Music Connection, September 2015
“…’Glimpse of Light’ is a beautiful downtempo piece that will spark even more anticipation in fans for the forthcoming October 2 release. The first two-thirds of the track are relaxing, with Anthony Thogmartin’s uplifting lyrics echoing over delicate effects and glitchy synth stabs. After a short dropout, a full wall of sound hits your ears with the near force of a heavy metal breakdown, coupled with trancey synth sounds. Hopefully the rest of Extras in a Movie will match the beauty and sound quality of this single.”
–Kyle Rutherford, TheUntz.com, 9/1/15
Papadosio continues to consistently impress in both the recorded and live settings, with their unique blend of progressive/psychedelic/electronica-influenced rock and roll and stunning visual displays.”
