Bryant Eugene Vasquez é um trovador as avessas, ao contrário da suavidade e demais facetas de quem leva esta alcunha, o cara distribui ruídos, ao melhor estilo discípulo de Phil Spector, dos irmãos Reid e John Cale.
O novo single do cara não deixa a afirmação acima ficar em vão, "Strange Light" é uma linda e ruidosa canção de amor, mas que como reza a lenda, no final o amor vai embora.
Escute alto e entenda as inspirações do Bryant para esta nova pérola de ruído branco.
Strange Light by Bryant Eugene Vazquez
I see it as a farewell to my exploration into the genre of shoegaze/noise pop. As I might have mentioned in a previous article, I'm in the midst of a series of album studies. Grey Expectation was the second in a trilogy. With the release of "Strange Light" I hope to close the chapter on this study. It's been a beautiful and challenging time writing and recording this material, but I am ready to move on to the next study.
"Strange Light" was written after the release of Grey Expectations. Perhaps it was always intended to be a closing note on the study of shoegaze/noise pop. The name came from a literal translation of a person's name whom I briefly knew. She was a very beautiful person, and so in my nature, I was brought under some form of spell. I became enveloped in the concept of this person. I didn't know her very well, but I'd created a false reality of who she was or could be- in order to suit my fantasy. In the end, my lack of a grasp of this reality led to the dissolving of the relationship. I suppose it's in everyone's nature: to create our own worlds, regardless of the truth. Maybe it's because we need it in that moment; maybe it's because we're all lonely people, and a dream is so easy to fall in love with. In any case, I awoke from it, and this is the result of that awakening.
