A Song that Inspired the Album
"Cicada Nation" is the title track of the forthcoming album of the same name scheduled for release in 2018. The track explores themes relating to how the use of new technologies when paired with internet allow just about anyone to share art and ideas for public consumption. It's a bit of a double-edged sword. While it's great that everyone now has a voice, there's so much noise it's nearly impossible to cut through it all. Like in late-Summer months, huge broods of cicadas emerge from the earth and create a wall of sound that's instantly recognizable yet void of individuality.
Based in Northern Virginia, the band serves as a showcase for the original songwriting of its members.
