Rising Sacramento post-hardcore outfit, Dwellings, shared their highly anticipated album, Little Garden, a few months back. The band has been excited to share what’s next. Now their growing fan base can finally have what they’ve been craving: new music.
Inspired by the likes of Circa Survive, The Mars Volta, and Hail the Sun, Dwellings’s members make up of vocals from Isaac Wilson, guitar from Erik Tilja, Marx, bass from Marco Loarca, and drums from Thomas Reilly
The album in its entirety is a masterfully crafted piece of artwork. Intricate guitar and drum work decorate the senses. And lead vocals contrast the space with a refined, crisp lyricism and sound.
Let’s take a moment to talk about single, “Devices.”
Watch the song’s official music video below:
Lead vocalist, Isaac Wilson, pour vocals into the soundscape from the start of the track. Effortlessly performed electronic work and bass harmonize the space to create an infectious melody that dances in the mind long after the song has completed playing. Anyone who listens is sure to feel the pull of the song’s story, poetic lyricism, and skillful performance from each musician.
Shortly after the release of “Devices,” fans were quick to pick their favorite from the mix of tracks to come. The single was performed live with audience members already singing along to every word. However, what makes the track the most special is the meaning behind it. Here’s what the band had to say about the song:
“Devices” is about starting in a new place left with nothing except the things in your pockets and on your back. It’s about embarking on a journey to a new place and how the ups and downs affect your resolve. There are hints of losing it and wanting to give up, as well as lines of bravery and great respect toward the end goal.
The song talks about how others will try and take what you have for themselves and pretend they made it all along. Most importantly, it ends with the bridge at a low place with somber feelings but quickly reminds them that they really are left to their own devices, and the only person you can truly rely on is you.
