ALDA New Trackstream 'Drawn Astray'

ALDA band

Cascadian sonic architects ALDA have revealed the new track "Drawn Astray"!

 

The track is the second to be revealed from the band's highly anticipated fourth album, "A Distant Fire", set for international release on October 8th 2021 via Eisenwald. It is available for streaming on all major digital platforms: https://ffm.to/drawnastray.oyd

 

 

On "A Distant Fire", ALDA demonstrates a keen sense for engaging songwriting and a use of melody that is sure to enthrall listeners familiar with their work as well as individuals who are new to their sound.

 

Thematically, the album tells a story about facing a dire and uncertain future, of nights illuminated by distant blazes and days obscured by ash and smoke. The songs fuse elements of the aforementioned genres with an ease that allows these songs to develop organically and presents listeners with an enticing sonic experience.

 

The immersive qualities of the album are emphasized by the band's epic compositions, both in length and musical development throughout the songs.

 

Written between 2017 and 2019, "A Distant Fire" was recorded and engineered during 2020 by Jake Superchi (UADA, Ceremonial Castings), who provides these songs with an appropriately warm and accessible production job that complements the band's music and compositions admirably. Finally, mastering was done by the renowned Mell Dettmer at Studio Soli (Sunn O))), Wolves in the Throne Room, Earth, Elder).

 

The cover and whole insert artwork was painted by Second Nature Artwork - Craig Strother.

 

Overall, "A Distant Fire" represents a noticeable growth and transformation in ALDA's songwriting and musical performance, while staying true to the spirit and intentions that have informed their music during their 14 years as a band.
