We began writing the songs for A Transient Second within the Solar in late 2020. It was daunting at first attempting to make music just about from 4 separate places (NYC, Los Angeles, North Carolina, Austria) in the course of a worldwide pandemic, however we shortly discovered a songwriting groove and we added biweekly video convention calls to maintain ourselves on observe. By early 2021, we realized that there was one thing very particular and passionate (and pressing) occurring in these songs, and in November we met up for 4 days of in-person rehearsals in Brooklyn earlier than heading right down to Magpie Cage Studio in Baltimore to file the album with our previous buddy J. Robbins. It was fairly unbelievable working with J., who impressed some essential adjustments to the songs, and Ian MacKaye got here to the studio for 2 days to assist make them even stronger.
A Transient Second within the Solar is a story LP, filled with tales: some based mostly on Bobby’s private experiences and others addressing risky sociopolitical themes, together with an historic perspective on racial oppression in the US. In each the music and the lyrics, this new album picks up the place Soulside left off years in the past—however with zero nostalgia within the combine.
