Failed Utopia was put in motion in late 2011 with the intentions of covering topics that both members of the group face in their lives, outside of being musicians. The general concept of the album is a question that plagues most people, “If you had a second chance to live your life would you do anything different?” The album takes place behind the eyes of someone who has a second chance at life and describes stories, events, and scenarios that he sees differently during his journey. The subject matter consist of- failing to find perfection, getting looked over by someone you are attracted to, abuse, attachment to technology, losing time that can’t be recovered, and how race and religion can affect how one views their life and how others may view them.
Six Degrees Vinyl coming soon.
Inspired by soirees that feel like Speakeasys and an effervescent refusal to live miserably; this song is my glass clinkin’, shit talkin’ celebration of a life lead by the hardworking and heartbreaking. — Alexander Spit
