Is 'reset’ relevant? - written by The Paris Connection
Our planet is completely locked up as the first chords of this album struggle for existence, provoked by an underlying sentiment of discontent. ’20-’21 is a tipping point. Not because 5 musicians with converging pasts feel somehow compelled to make a record, but because the pivotal times in which they live, force them to reassert their focus.
‘Reset’ undeniably bears the stamp of a generation that yearns for social and political change. These are galvanising songs that stand proudly on the shoulders of the rich musical heritage of 5 friends, firmly rooted in a deeply dedicated alternative music scene.
But when the last feedback dies out and the stage turns deafeningly silent, only context remains.
In today’s ever growing war for ideologies, music proves its relevance as a powerful platform and cross-generational unifying force. ‘Reset’ combines the creative ambitions of 5 awakened citizens with their drive to inspire the audience. Some have personally experienced the difficulty of keeping ideals alive. Others became fathers themselves, with a growing awareness of the legacy they will be leaving their children.
This record had to be written. It is the fruit of an era that, more than ever, forced our free spirits into lockdown. When driven to the brink, a society is left with two choices. Choose!
