UK progressive rock youngsters Synaesthesia have released a video for an instrumental taken from the band’s this year’s self-titled debut album. View the video for Noumenon below.
Commented band’s keyboardist Adam Warne: “We were given the opportunity to do some performance filming at my university’s film and television studio as the guys there needed guinea pigs so I instantly jumped on it! Perfect win-win situation. They get test subjects they needed – we get the high definition footage and the audio to do whatever we want with.
“I discussed this with the rest of the guys and we agreed on doing two tracks, one of those tracks is the instrumental ‘Noumenon’. Part of the reason why we went for this was because we were more prepared to play this than a lot of the other tracks. Bear in mind that we filmed this in November. Our first ever rehearsal as a band was just three weeks before the videos we filmed. We’re very proud of what we achieved considering it was still very much early days.
“Michael Holmes of IQ who also produced the album was there sitting in on the whole thing and he agreed that we sounded tight and put on a good performance which means a hell of a lot,” continues Warne. “If Mike says somethings sounds good, you know you can count on it and use as a form of motivation. Let’s put it that way!“
“The track itself is a short instrumental track with references to some of the melodies heard in the longer, first track of the album – ‘Time, Tension and Intervention’.”
Asked about what the reception on the new album has been so far Warne replied: “I’m absolutely blown away by the support we’ve had. So many people have said great things about what we’ve released, including the dozens upon dozens of fantastic reviews! It’s just incredibly motivating and means a hell of a lot to me. I still look at the album as a silly little project I wrote in my bedroom a few years back, but now it’s out there in the spectrum and people actually like it.”
In regards to the band’s upcoming live shows, Warne said: “I really can not wait to get out there and play this music live in front of more live audiences (rather than television cameras!). We’ve already played our first gig supporting IQ in Holland for their Christmas Bash (which was such an exhilarating experience!) but that was all the way back in December of 2013 so we’re really looking forward to future gigs!”
