about

Just before their new live performance at the famous Dragon Con, and exactly 3 weeks before the much anticipated release of their 4th studio full length album, I:SCINTILLA unveil this time “Swayed”, the
title-track from the album. It could be described as some sort of 11-minute post-rock odyssey that traverses several soundscapes - tribal, shoegaze, downtempo, and full-blown rock noise.

A very special song for the band because it came together so magically and it touches upon so many energies and textures they had not explored before. Lyrically and vocally, it features some of the best moments of the band’s entire catalogue.

As bonus for this new single, we get a remix of “Carmena Saturna” by AXON RISE who won the I:SCINTILLA charity remix contest this Summer and generated donation for Darkest Before Dawn (a non-profit organization based in Chicago and Los Angeles with one simple, yet urgent goal: to provide resources, support, and community for the nightlife, restaurant and music venue industry, who’s late hours and isolated commutes leave them susceptible to depression, addiction and suicide).

LYRICS:

SWAYED

Waste the freedom
Follow me
Burn away
Erase your future
Follow me
Feel the sway

Like it’s the last night of our lives
Hey
I’ll craft carefully mad wars
Play

Waste the freedom
Follow me
Burn away
Erase your future
Follow me
Feel the sway

There’s nothing to break
You gave it away
There’s no one to blame
You gave it away
There’s nothing to take
You gave it away
There’s no one to break
You gave it away

I’ll be king of the junkyard
The smoke with your dreams of fire
I’ll be king of the junkyard
The hope in a funeral pyre

Have you been swayed?
