Jan. 14 — Independent alt/prog rock band Seven Eyed Crow is scheduled to release its latest record this month.
The band is scheduled to release its new EP, Icarus Jan. 21. In anticipation of the record’s release, the band released its debut single, ‘To My Old Man‘ and its companion video Jan. 10. Icarus will be the band’s third overall record and second EP behind its debut EP, Dark Ways (2016) and its follow, the band’s debut album, Organized Chaos (2018).
The musical arrangement featured in ‘To My Old Man’ is a subtle, flowing composition. At some points, influences of Leprous and Tool are evident. At others, hints of Incubus are just as audible. It sounds like an odd contrast in sounds, but it works well in this case.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of the band’s new single and video. No lyrics were provided with the video, either. From what can be deciphered, it would seem that the song’s lyrical theme (in partner with its title) is of a personal nature that perhaps deals with the loss of one of the band member’s fathers. There is a mournful tone to what can be deciphered sans lyrics and explanation, too. That and the song’s musical arrangement gives the song such a powerful depth.
