Singled Out: Eidola's The Abstract Of A Planet In Resolve


Eidola recently released their new album "To Speak, To Listen" and to celebrate we asked singer Andrew Wells to tell us about the song "The Abstract Of A Planet In Resolve." Here is the story:

"The Abstract Of A Planet In Resolve" actually came to me in a dream one night. The song structure, drums, melody, and lyrics all played in full. It took me a few days to actually manifest the song structure in real life, but I worked with my drummer Matt and we pieced it all together for the other guys to write to.

At the time I was actually listening to a lot of Paramore and Pvris. I think one song in particular that influenced Abstract was the song "Careful" off of Paramore's Brand New Eyes. That song is super catchy and hits a really raw, emotional place for me. I loved tapping into that for this album opener.

The song itself serves as an overture for the album, and lyrically I wanted it to work as a sort of compendium for the concept itself. Something relevant and hopeful, modern but still functional as a conceptual narrative.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
