London socially conscious trio KOMRAUS (Vocals – Sara Rioja, Drums – Giuseppe Grondona, Keys – Miguel Ramires), share their rather alluring yet meaningful debut album ‘Untie The Ropes’, due 15th February 2019 via M.A.R.S.
The intense album, recorded live in one take at Andy Whitmore Studios in West London, works as a sparkling collection of cinematic trip-hop infused sounds.
The band explain: “This album represents a breaking free of our own boundaries; a dare to do, a dare to say and a dare to love album. It is inspired in the different scenes and situations we all live throughout our life performing all the roles our life is about, like if it was a theatre play. Each song talks about different optics of human relationships as well as personal growth and some social and political matters. One song is written from the perspective of a free person, with no ties or social limits; another one is from the one who is dependant to someone who loves; another one from the one who is addicted to the modern life and lives like a machine, another one from a mother who sees his child grow and wishes him/her to be free and fly. They are all part of an imaginary and personal world that we all live: always real, always true. We recorded all songs in one take, so we could transmit to the listener a bit of what we give when we perform live”.
Here’s the impressive video , directed by Pedro Caxade, for album’s title track ‘Untie The Ropes’, filmed at Leigh Marine Boatyard, Leigh on Sea, UK.
