Rising electro-indie-rock outfit Speak Low If You Speak Love has premiered new song 'Contrasting Colors.' The song is taken off upcoming 2nd studio album 'Nearsighted' with Pure Noise Records on 19th January.
"Contrasting Colors' is a song about one thousand realisations in one: Realising you and the person that you fell in love with lead completely different lives, realising that you've been holding tightly to something that doesn't actually make sense in the end, realising that your intentions became motivated by something you can't explain. But most of all it's about accepting whatever outcome you're given" says Ryan.
Speak Low If You Speak Love is the solo project from the incredibly talented, multi-instrumentalist musician Ryan Scott Graham, who also plays bass and provides backing vocals in the popular pop-punk band State Champs. 'Nearsighted' will be the second, full-length album from Speak Low If You Speak Love, following Graham’s debut record 'Everything But What You Need,' which was released in 2015 by Pure Noise Records. The forthcoming album transcends beyond his early acoustic work, as he explores expanded sounds and instrumentation with a refined sense of depth and maturity.
"Working on Nearsighted was an immense process” Graham adds “I wanted to experiment in a big way with my songwriting and my drummer Drew and I sat with each song for days, weeks, (even years on a handful of tunes) just toiling with each chord progression, making sure every note had purpose. I'm older now, and I'm always looking for new ways to express certain ideas, so I really feel we captured that with the sound of this record. It's different enough to be interesting and fun, but still the Speak Low I think many have come to know. Our producer Aaron Marsh took these songs and really changed the game. It was a pleasure working with an artist I've looked up to for years."
