John Floreani, widely known as the honest and unabashed front man of Trophy Eyes, has announced his debut full length solo album, sin, will be released June 7, 2019 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.
In addition to the announcement, Floreani dropped the first single and music video from sin for fans to enjoy. “Echoes” is a cinematic anthem full of string arrangements and unique percussion and that build into massive choruses.
On the track, Floreani shares “Echoes is about the memories, love and emotion one leaves behind in a home after moving on. My partner and I lived in North Sydney for a while, and when she moved back to Texas, I had to go and clear the house of our furniture and belongings. As I walked through the house, I could see her dancing in the kitchen, drinking wine on the couch and inviting me to bed from the hallway.”
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 on the upcoming album.
