Post-metal shoegaze band SOM share the official animated video for “Stranger” created by visual artist Josh Graham. The song is culled from their recently released debut album The Fall.
Dark, heavy, and thoughtful, SOM craft songs of epic melancholy. Featuring members of Caspian, founding members of seminal Boston space rock outfit Constants, as well as Denver post-metal voyagers Adai, SOM build thunderous rhythms that give drive and pulse to the fuzzed-out wall-of-synth-and-guitar-noise, complemented by memorable hooks and melodies in singer/guitarist Will Benoit’s somber, lamenting vocals.
SOM wrote and recorded their new debut album, The Fall, at Benoit’s solar powered The Radar Studio with help from engineer Daryl Rabidoux (Doomsday Student, Drowningman). The current live iteration of the band finds the trio joined by guitarists Joel Munguia and Mike Repasch-Nieves of Junius and Driftoff, who expand upon the album’s synth-heavy textures with interwoven layers of distorted melody.
The Fall is available on CD, cassette and download, released November 9th, 2018. Orders are available via Bandcamp HERE.
