“Beauty In The Ten­sion (CD)” FOR­WARD MU­SIC GROUP

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Fe­bru­ary 9. Beauty in the Ten­sion, the fifth stu­dio al­bum from New Brunswick song­writ­ing quar­tet The Olympic Symphonium, is the re­sult of ru­ral iso­la­tion, small com­forts, and the dis­cov­ery of two pairs of ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ pa­jama pants. For six days last win­ter, Nick Cob­ham, Kyle Cun­jak, Den­nis Good­win and Graeme Walker holed up in the leg­endary Old Con­fi­dence Lodge stu­dio in River­port, Nova Sco­tia to fo­cus on cap­tur­ing 13 new com­po­si­tions. Con­sist­ing of four dis­tinct and di­verse song­writ­ers, the band has crafted a full, lush sound that is en­tirely their own. A sound that fea­tures emo­tional mu­si­cal flour­ishes, soar­ing har­monies that float in and out, and dra­matic lyri­cal con­tent. It is the sound of a strange and beau­ti­ful ten­sion. (180g LP ver­sion due in March!)
