Long Beach, CA based indie rock group Fellow Robot have just premiered another taste of what’s to come from their debut album The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1. New single “Become the Sky” premiered on Spill Magazine, who called the song a “brooding and austere crawl…moody and organ heavy.”
Lead vocalist Anthony Pedroza had this to say about the track: “Tracking for “Become the Sky” started one stormy night, the rain pounding the roof of the studio. I cranked my three tier organ to the loudest setting and played along with the storm. The song shows my frustration with some people not living to their fullest potential.”
“Become the Sky” is the second track to be released from the band’s forthcoming debut concept album, The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1, which will see a release on June 29th.
The album is a concept record, and the first part of a three part album series that explores a future where artificial intelligence has reached a pinnacle, and robots begin to document and chronicle humans and the music they make. The album was a collaborative effort between Pedroza, drummer Luis Renteria, and friends from the local Long Beach music scene.
