With Our Arms to the Sun, ‘Tessellation’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
Chances are you’re unfamiliar with experimental band With Our Arms to the Sun, so let us be the first to tell you that this group has a bright future. In the vein of legendary acts such as King Crimson and Isis, With Our Arms to the Sun gather influence from a pool of eclectic sources, as demonstrated in this exclusive premiere of ‘Tessellation.’
With Our Arms to the Sun is still a very new band, but the Arizona act contains a wealth of veteran musicianship and songwriting expertise. The group focuses mostly on instrumental parts, but when it’s time for vocals to appear, the measures are well placed and beautifully executed. Taking pride in their originality, With Our Arms to the Sun play from the heart and strive to achieve a sound apart from what other bands have done before.
With ‘Tessellation,’ With Our Arms to the Sun flesh out a long and progressive intro before mellowing out with atmospheric synth and captivating vocal harmonies. Just after the track’s halfway point, some fantastic drumming provides the foundation for a Native American-like chant, which only sucks the listener further into With Our Arms to the Sun’s sonic vacuum. The outro to ‘Tessellation’ is intriguing as well, overlaying a spacey vocal sample with twinkling bell-like effects.
“The song “Tessellation” is one of the more cinematic, expressive songs of the band,” explains guitarist Josh Breckenridge. “This song has almost Native American undertones in the vocals with 70′s style psychedelic synths.”
