Artist: Thousand Below
Title: Let Go of Your Love
Label: Rise Records
Words: Woody Woodworth
When the world was put into a global quarantine, people had a once and a lifetime opportunity to take advantage of something only few consciously dreamed of; indefinite time standing in front of them with no clear ending in sight. This new-found blessing in disguise allowed everyone to look inside themselves and reflect upon who they really are in this quickly shrinking world. Thousand Below took that one step further and put out a reimagined E.P. featuring stripped down versions of songs from 2019’s Gone in Your Wake, while also including a brand new song.
Let Go of Your Love is the perfect backdrop for positive motivation featuring acoustic renditions of what thrusted Thousand Below into the conversation of breakout post-hardcore bands
Let Go of Your Love is the perfect backdrop for positive motivation featuring acoustic renditions of what thrusted Thousand Below into the conversation of breakout post-hardcore bands. The stripped back versions show the true breadth of what the quartet from San Diego can do while giving their fans a little something extra and even brandishing new fans along the way.
The E.P. bursts right out of the gate with let go of your love featuring a quintessential, happily ever after soundscape while also encompassing somber riffs and traversing dual harmonies left and right. The outro cascades strongly with more harmonies that eventually flow into a remix reimagination of Chemical, one of the lead singles from Gone in Your Wake. Helping find a different flow, the band enlisted the help of Dead Lakes vocalist Sumner Peterson.
Thousand Below are now starting to hit listener’s radars after scoring a deep tour before the pandemic hit with Miss May I, The Word Alive and Afterlife
The remix version of chemical is a very creative reimagining of the fully plugged instrumentals that drew many fans in and also features strong vocals powerful enough to shake your fingertips. The collaboration with Peterson was a perfect decision, even more so because of the inherent intertwining of an already diverse scene. The rest of the E.P. highlights more acoustic captures of soon to be a full foundation for their career to jump from.
Thousand Below are now starting to hit listener’s radars after scoring a deep tour before the pandemic hit with Miss May I, The Word Alive and Afterlife. If this is what the group can put together for reimaginings, we can’t wait until they set their eyes on their next release.
