Artist - Release Title: GRMLN - Soon Away
With 'Soon Away', Grmln veers from the pop-punk-rooted road the band traversed with last year's 'Empire'; it's an aggressive album, darker and heavier than what's come before. While it carries these characteristics, there is also a certain peace to 'Soon Away', thanks to songwriter Yoodoo Park's personal growth. The teachings of Krishna were an inspiration to Park while writing the record and it's a force that helped define his perspective in these songs. The singer-guitarist sees the constant changes of life allowing people to embrace the true nature of living. Still, there's intensity to these guitar-driven tracks. On the opener of the album 'Jaded' Park sings, "Go, but you're breaking without me / When days can crawl around / To waste myself away," which is built around one of Grmln's catchiest riffs to date. The album grapples with letting go and getting used to good-byes. "Find a way to be wanted and here for someone else / Break away from the notion, the poison in my head," Park sings on the cathartic 'Faux.'
