Pray For Sound • Everything Is Beautiful [2xLP]
Released by dunk!records in Europe on Sept. 23rd, 2016. Comes in gatefold cover, 180g colored vinyl (blue splatter on clear is the exclusive dunk!records edition)
After releasing Dreamer on CD in Europe we are happy to have this band from Boston still on dunk!records for this next beautiful release.
The third release from Pray for Sound, Everything Is Beautiful, communicates the dichotic concept of light vs. dark without a single spoken word. As the follow up to the band’s 2014 album Dreamer, Everything Is Beautiful marks an all in decision to dedicate their energies towards the band. “The five of us left our ‘real lives’ behind in Massachusetts and relocated up to Glover, Vermont for eight days with all our music equipment,” recalls Malley. “No distractions or stress.” Removing all societal participation built quite a euphoric experience for the band, and allowed them to find renewed creativity in their songwriting. The eleven new songs found on Everything Is Beautiful feature turbulent guitar riffs and heart pounding drums accompanied by sweeping and all encompassing undercurrents of sound that evoke the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Tycho, and Explosions in the Sky. “We discovered a newfound excitement for the music we were making,” says Malley of the time spent writing and recording Everything Is Beautiful. “We took our time to finish our ideas, and the end result is something we're all incredibly proud of.”
Everything Is Beautiful was written, recorded, produced, and mixed by the band themselves. The band is accompanied by a united release from I Am Shark, AM/FM Records, and dunk!records (EU) coordinating a full-length release via Digital/CD/Vinyl/Merch on September 23rd, 2016.
