My debut EP, Vehemence, is now available on all of these fine platforms!
An audible experience is what I wanted to do with Vehemence. With varied approaches, the songs are hopefully able to really encapsulate the listener with the mood and atmosphere. The song titles, especially with the final track, Exhaustion, I hope, personifies what I was trying to accomplish.
The goal is to ultimately have you throw on your headphones and enjoy the 35-minute excursion.
“With looming shutdowns in February 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the final few recordings for Optional’s debut LP could not be completed. Shuttered inside, Vehemence was born.
Named after the desire to produce more music, Vehemence is a teaser of things to come: ideas which could not be fully realized in the upcoming LP.
Put some headphones on, increase the bass, sit back and relax. You’re going on a journey.”
