Taken off his upcoming new record sin, out 7 June.
John Floreani, widely known as the honest and unabashed front man of Trophy Eyes, has released a new single from his recently announced debut full length solo album, sin, released 7 June via Hopeless Records.
With musical influences ranging from indie pop/alt rock to folk/Americana, the 8-track album is the highly anticipated follow up to Floreani’s previously released EP Terrace (2014). It’s a lyrical deep dive into heartache, addiction and self-loathing, stylistically portrayed as Johnny Cash dipped in Neon.
On the heartbreaking and honest track, Floreani shares, “my brother has always been a troubled person. His fight to be a better version of himself has been a long and painful losing battle that hurts everybody involved. I’ve been kind to him over the years – I was really the only person that loved and cared for him unconditionally. Recently, after a falling out, I decided to not be that person anymore.”
Recorded and mixed by Shane Edwards (Trophy Eyes, Hans Zimmer), the 8-track album is the pursuit of happiness and all that is good, built on a foundation of vice and evil-doing. “This project serves as an authentic, deep knee jerk reaction to the shallow lyrical themes of modern pop” shares Floreani of the album.
