Hello dear listener. Thank you for visiting. Here is Afterthought EP.
Four carefully arranged lullaby rock songs for the listener's hearing pleasure.
A palette of strings, drums, rich vocal harmonies, and guitars that both strum softly and distort to assert a point.
Lyrics about being a person, self-respect, considering the shortness of life, and having the courage to be vulnerable to new love.
Afterthought EP features string and vocal arrangements deeply inspired by the album Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys, and the album Discover America by Van Dyke Parks.
Also of PARTICULAR general inspiration is the work of Blake Mills and Feist, whose masterful use of dynamic contrast continues to delight at every turn.
