Between The Buried and Me’s Tommy Rogers will release his second album as Thomas Giles next month, and you can hear a new song from the effort now, at the end of this post.
The new album is entitled Modern Noise.
Testing the limits of what he can do naturally with his voice, Rogers’ strikingly beautiful falsetto and dynamic range conjures tales of anxiety, collapse, end-times and strength against swelling, heart-lifting arrangements and pristine backdrops of ambient loops, digital burbles, analog hiss and woozy drones, says a press release.
Exploring combinations of the outré genres of both post-rock and electronic, the music’s emotionally resonant yet textural sounds draw reference to artists such as Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, the Verve, Beck, Oasis and Spiritualized, balancing both rock and electronic impulses. Listen to the first single from the album, “Mutilated World” now at metalblade.com/thomasgiles.
The title Modern Noise is merely a statement that reflects what they are creating: their take on the modern rock sound.
Tommy Rogers explains the title and music:
“This record was an outcome of me creating songs while not wanting to over evaluate the music. I wanted to record things that naturally came to me and because of this, the record feels like an accurate extension of myself. I took a more rock approach and really focused on writing simple yet dynamic songs. Lyrically, I feel it’s a great mix of storytelling and personal experience. “Modern Noise” is basically just saying this is my current noise on the earth. We all are here for a short amount of time and the noise we make is our memory.”
