“Standing Tide” is the first song that the band wrote and has had multiple changes since its initial form; they feel it captures not only their heavy aspects, but also their progressive sound and use of dynamics and complex rhythms.
APOAPSIS’s single “Standing Tide” is being released today! The song combines multiple styles of music, which showcases each member’s wide variety of musical tastes.
Vocalist/Guitarist Drew Pinto stated:
“The song takes the listener on a tour of our different musical inspirations; it includes bits and pieces of genres we love, like Punk, Prog Metal, Post-Hardcore, Rock, and even Ambient. I always try to imbue a story into the lyrics that I write, and this was no exception – this song is a story about a man’s decision to explore the ocean, having no desire to continue his boring, day-to-day life onshore. For me, this song narrates a metaphor for how we as people often bite off more than we can chew.”
