Liberty takes on the issues of the world in a bold & colourfully lo-fi manner. It does so with a surprising touch of heartfelt soul & passion, the likes of which win you over more & more so as the project progresses.
Originally intended as the soundtrack to a film entitled Monad, which sadly never saw the light of day. Fortunately, IX saw the crime in keeping these tracks unreleased, and so – this unique & rather brilliant album was born.
This album manages to feel short & quite epic in proportions at the very same time. Across The Board put out new music & creative content as often as possible & there’s no question as to how mighty this level of experience allows their sound to be.
This is exciting music that throws everything onto the table & does so with style & depth. You’ll recognise their music after listening to just a couple of songs, though the album in its entirety is where the real experience lies.
Taking a dash of Beach Boys, a flicker of Jack Johnson, and a fair helping of something a little more emotionally folk-like, the band emerge as dedicated songwriters & passionate musicians.
A totally unique project. Compiled of 11 instrumental tracks, written across an eight year time-frame, the collection pours out around you like some mildly psychedelic, colourful & immersive waterfall.
The ideas touch on topics that are likely to be close to heart of many modern day listeners – true to the times, of shared struggle or difficulty. Even so, the band have approached this in an exceedingly comforting way.
Eclecticism is defiantly a part of this project, but even so – you get a feel for the progression, the voices, the style, the subject matter. The band have something that is their’s, and that’s exciting.
