Austin TX rock band Sounds Under Radio will release their My Communist Heart EP on March 30, 2010. This is the first of two EP’s the band will independently release this year. The second EP My Capitalist Mind (set for release September 7, 2010) is an extension of the first EP, and together they will complete Sounds Under Radio’s sophomore full-length album Where My Communist Heart Meets My Capitalist Mind.
On My Communist Heart the band set out to break their own rules and test their own creative boundaries. The goal was to create something larger, more anthemic yet also more intimate and centered than their 2008 release Cinematica. The result is a cerebral and reflective work born out of an intense investigation of the human spirit and a sound that is more grandiose and stadium sized yet still personal and focused. On the poignant track ‘Sing’ the band dives into the complexity of personal relationships. Melodies build and blend giving way to the uplifting message that despite ones own faults, with love there is always hope.
The second EP, My Capitalist Mind will serve both as an extension and as a foil to the themes presented on My Communist Heart. While both are politically charged at the core, they have nothing to do with domestic policy or international affairs. These EP’s are about investigating the politics of the self and the constant internal war of head vs heart.
The culmination of both EP’s will be fully realized when the full length Where My Communist Heart Meets My Capitalist Mind is released in late 2010. Strong visual and multimedia elements will blend with the vast sonic landscape to build a cross medium experience that goes beyond the typical musical excursion.
Sounds Under Radio will be performing at this years SXSW music festival (Friday, March 19th at 8:30pm at Buffalo Billiards) followed by continuous touring throughout 2010.
