We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of 1476’s new song “Odessa” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Our Season Draws Near, which is scheduled to be released on March 31st through Prophecy Productions. You can pre-order the album here.
1476’s Robb Kavjian comments on the song:
“‘Odessa’ is about reflecting on life and the choices we make, asking ourselves if we are truly happy and if our actions truly serve us. I’ve always felt that it’s of utmost importance to be honest with ourselves about our intentions and actions in life. By having an honest sense of self-awareness, we can grow and become free and happy within our individual lives by working hard and getting rid of the dead weight we surround ourselves with. However, I’ve found that once we go down this path, it can be lonely, confusing, and isolating as everything becomes new and unpredictable. We must learn to endure, be vigilant, proactive, self-motivating, and willing to fight until the very end.”
1476 plays post black metal that explores the sound of bands like Agalloch just as much as it hints at more DIY punk roots. The band’s music harbors an energy that reflects the old, haunting landscapes of New England’s coastal regions. Brothers in mind are bands like Amebix or Neurosis who share that background and made their own ways in dark and atmospheric heavy music enhanced by rich esoteric/spiritual concepts.
