Indie rock duo The Narrative have announced their new album, Golden Silence, will be out 12/2. To celebrate the announcement, the duo have released their newest track, “California Sun”, streaming via All Things Go Music.
The band initially set out to record an ambitious full length in a barn in upstate New York, complete with orchestral arrangements and textured foundations for many of the songs. Working under the budgetary confines of an independent band presented some challenges, and the project slowed down, losing steam and eventually coming to a complete halt.
The loss of momentum was toxic, leading to endless self-questioning about the band’s goals, talent, and what they originally loved about being involved in music.
Born and bred on Long Island, NY, the band has recently relocated to Nashville, TN, armed with a new ideology and prepared to finally release the long-delayed record.
Golden Silence is an album about discovering hard truths in life, told through the lenses of the band’s interpersonal relationships, individual experiences, and relationships with the outside world. The themes on the album range from broader topics such as societal values, to much more intimate subjects like the band’s relationships with their own music.
