In The Presence Of Wolves are streamiing a new song titled “White Noise”. Vocalist/bassist Vini Stamato explains the track:
“Conceptually, this is the last track that represents our main character’s denial stage of grief and in reality, this marks a major change in the ITPOW song writing style. When we started writing this album, we knew that we wanted to focus more on the song writing aspect of our music and not just how many technical curveballs we could throw at our listeners. This track was delicate from the beginning. Opening the track with a common time signature allowed us to focus more on melody but it also presented us with more of a challenge in regards to selecting the perfect melody for the song itself. Writing the non-instrumental passages for this track was like walking on egg shells.
Fortunately, the majority of the song came together when I was home sick from work for a few days. In those few days, most of the vocal melodies were finalized and also the majority of the middle instrumental section was constructed. One of the parts that we had the most fun writing for this track was the outro. That was pretty much a straight, solid hour of Chris and I hashing out the entire section step by step and seeing what pieces fit where. We were extremely surprised to find how well this section translates live. When we get to this part in our set, the entire room goes silent as we play. We were floored the first time this happened. I remember thinking to myself, ‘oh wow. I think we created a moment’.”
“White Noiose” is featured on the group’s upcoming release Of Two Minds, Stages 1-2: The Ape and The Cage. The EP hits stores this Friday, June 30th, but you can pre-order it today via Bandcamp.
