“The record is a themed album, and I wanted a title that really summed up the concept of the whole record,” …Of Sinking Ships’ Chad Waldrup says of “Breathing Anew,” the resplendent, meandering post-rock composition from the Charlotte band’s upcoming sophomore release. “Concocting a narrative for an instrumental record is a lot harder than it looks, but there’s one to be teased out here,” he says.
“The title The Amaranthine Sea essentially means the unending everlasting sea. The song titles tell a story and the music is laid out in a story like fashion, the record has ups and downs, climaxes and revelations. ‘Breathing Anew’ is definitely a revelation.”
The Amaranthine Sea will be out on Broken Circles on March 25.
