Published May 15, 2014Redvers, the project helmed by Australian songwriter Justin Gill, will be releasing the album Truth in Silence on June 3, and he's given us a taste of it ahead of time with the new song "Impressions."
Beginning with a twittering field recordings, the song builds from quiet folk balladry to quietly dramatic passages with atmospheric slide guitar and sombre strings.
It's a non-traditional love song, and Gill explained in a statement, "I was single when I was writing this song and going on a few dates, and I began to wonder if I actually was this person I thought I was when I met people. What type of impression was I making?"
The album was recorded at San Francisco's Tiny Telephone studio with Ian Pellicci (Deerhoof, John Vanderslice), and the entire collection was captured in a single day.
