Tenacity releases debut album 'Long Faint Lights'
Updated: Aug 2
Tenacity is the embodiment of the modern music industry. Nothing is closed off and genres do not exist in their world, with the band's signature sound taking inspiration from everywhere. Originally a solo project for multi-instrumentalist Ula Wodarz, the band came together after Ula and bassist Tim Burghaus started collaborating at the BRIT School. It was here that they crossed paths with proghead guitarist Daniel Lazenby and fusion master Simba Jindu and their different talents have mixed to create Tenacity.
'Long Fait Lines' is a cinematic experience that pays homage to a whole array of genres and inspirations. The band's tight musicianship is shown through infectious drums, cinematic ambience and pop that blends together creating their trademark sound. The album is there to take the listener on a journey, and thus features tracks that are melancholy and stripped back and tracks that are sing-along pop hits. You’re constantly presented with a reverberated wall of noise that pays homage to their unique sound and a key feature throughout the album.
Speaking about the release, they tell us: “This album has been a long time coming for us, and I think (like many people) we've been through a lot in the past few years. These songs reflect on those experiences and are a call for a better future going forward.”
"We started working on Long Faint Lights just before the whole world came to a stop. Though it slowed us down, the whole situation made us look for creative ways around the logistical difficulties and we got there in the end. It feels so good to finally get it out despite the bumpy road that led to it.”
“These songs are made up of the most personal words I’ve ever shared with anyone, and not just through music but in general.”
If this release is anything to go by, they’re a band that is definitely worth keeping your eye on. With each release improving, it won’t be long until their signature sound is taking them to big slots on festivals and climbing chart positions.
