Without Faith is highlighted by Toby Rand’s soaring vocals, Garry Beers’ intricate bass runs and topped off with Jimmy Khoury’s Gilmour-esque guitar tones. It winds through an enchanting mix of arena rock entwined with progressive interludes and delicious melodies.
A spiritual awakening during a time of distraction and destruction, Without Faith is a song of exploration. To be able to unravel your inner peace during a time of adversity is challenging. Sometimes you need to lean on others in order to regain strength and take on any negativity that confronts you. Leading with empathy and compassion will help guide you into the unknown.
“I’ll be your grace when the sky is falling. All of your sins will settle with me”.
Pre-order/pre-save UMBRA I HERE
Without Faith comes off AshenMoon’s upcoming EP, UMBRA I to be released on October 16th. Echoing melodies of protest and liberation, UMBRA I is a reflective monologue drawing on human connection and environmental condition. Anthemic, yet magnetically intimate, Rand’s vocals traverse over the undeniable grooves of Beers (former INXS bassist) whilst Khoury’s guitars shine with soulful glee. Beers’ undeniable rhythm and swagger highlight the evolution of his songwriting & experience since the last INXS record. Mixer (multi-Grammy winner) David Reitzas captures the raw energy of the live instrumentation and fuses AM’s sound. An electrifying mixture of 70’s, new-wave and modern rock.
The first installment of a 2-part EP release, UMBRA I draws on Rand’s longing for inner and outer peace. With the world constantly facing new turmoils, his motto “The World Outside Is Born Within” is evident in the lyrical yearning for unity. AM’s underlying theme of self-discovery and sifting through the darkness in your mind will have you thinking of ways to overcome your battles and find your voice – Apt for the current climate we live in.
Recorded in several iconic LA studios, AshenMoon’s debut will have you pumping your fist, swinging your hips and quietly exploring your mind. Influenced by Beers’ INXS & Khoury’s experience touring with Beth Hart and working with Tom Petty’s HeartBreakers, AM creates a platform for Rand’s ability to seek the emotion of Buckley, yet roar, like Plant and Cornell before him.
