Spotlight on Symfinity and Intangible Dreams

Symfinity - Intangible Dreams - coverLumpy was completely blown away when he first checked out the first full length album by the five piece band, Symfinity.  If you like symphonic rock music mixed and recorded technically as well as composed, as in both excellent,  you’ll love this album, Intangible Dreams.

This is not exactly music easily tossed into a genre, the band and I will both mention this in the interview.  In terms of what Duke Ellington used to say about genre, this is in the “good” genre.  I put it in the genre of symphonic rock with hesitation.  While not so different that it is hard to listen to, it is far from a typical sound with a pleasing amount of variety and uniqueness.

I was impressed enough to immediately use the “pay what you want” at bandcamp to drop a 10 dollar bill and get my copy. Of course, I also chased the quintet down for station play permission and an interview.

Here is what they have to say about their album at bandcamp:

Intangible Dreams is Symfinity’s début album. Started by composer/songwriter, Seann Branchfield, who composed and orchestrated the songs, this album is truly difficult to categorize. The songs are very melodic and the orchestral sound becomes one of the most unifying factors. The songs also range from almost goth metal to ballads and plenty in between. The usage of flute as a solo instrument is prominent throughout the entire album with flutist, Nicole Schroeder performing on every track. Inspired by symphonic metal bands, this is generally on the lighter side and generally sticks to mainstream song lengths. The music is progressive in terms of orchestration and its unique sound rather than long complicated forms associated with most symphonic rock music. The lyrics are about hope, yearning, and the quest for meaning in life.

Listen in as Lumpy gets to talk to 3 of this band’s members as they discuss their music and more.  You will enjoy both the conversation and music.
