“The star imagery stuck with me when writing. It’s about letting and allowing yourself to move forward unencumbered by regrets/fears/sadness/mistakes of the past. I pictured someone floating through the cosmos and tried to make that image more grounded/universal/relatable.”Angelica Allen

PAM ROSS “Falling Off The Merry Go Roud”. Released April 21st.

STREAM “NOW “FALLING OFF THE MERRY GO ROUND” BY PAM ROSS ON SPOTIFY
“It’s easy to understand why I was inspired to write this song. The plague of school shootings is an evil that we can’t seem to stop let alone curtail. Everyone is busy politicizing the issue & pointing fingers instead of reaching across the aisle to develop solutions. I believe we play a part in making our own Frankensteins through the world we’ve created. Over 175 have died in school shootings since Columbine. As a society, we are failing our children and each other…we are all falling off the merry-go-round.”

COMA BEACH “Jesus’ Tears”. Released Jun 16th, 2021
Shock, chaos, pain, rage, and isolation: These are the thematic cornerstones of Coma Beach’s music. The very title of their debut album, The Scapegoat’s Agony, an ominous-sounding allusion to Samuel Beckett’s literary works, already bears the haunting promise of a highly unusual experience. Lurking behind it all, there is a clear-eyed artistic vision rather than a generic punk

“Jesus’ Tears”, laying out its position (track #7) as well as its function in the story told on our album “The Scapegoat’s Agony”:
“In his delirious state of madness, the unnamed antihero [= The Scapegoat] suffers through a Christ-like crucifixion, vowing to avenge himself on those he deems responsible for his suffering.”
