Jesus…that was a long ASS wait but here folks. Hong Kong electronicore band Soul of Ears released their long-awaited sophomore album ‘Zeta’ in December of 2020 but when we reported it back then (here) the label had only put two songs up for streaming. Finally, the album is up now streaming in all its glory across all platforms.
According to bassist/vocalist Kenta, “The crazy thing is, it’s been out since December 2020. But not all the songs in the album were available on major streaming platforms like Apple Music and Spotify. But now that it’s finally out, we are super stoked. We’ve been dying for everyone to listen to the album. In terms of music technicality and experimentation, it is way beyond everything we have done as a band and as individuals.”
From the songs we’ve (finally) gotten to hear so far, the technicality across all the songs is absolutely mesmerizing. Someone was very calculated and thoughtful in how the songs were going to be cut up, edited, layered, mixed, and mastered – there are so many layers to this record that you’ll continue to hear different things upon repeated listens.
Now that it’s out and people can finally hear it, “Hopefully when people can travel again, we can go touring. However, there’s a lot of unknowns and frankly, it’s frustrating. We sincerely appreciate those in HK who have invited us for shows. It means so much that we are still in people’s hearts. Thank you.”
Go smash that play button and share this shit far and wide! The album is of course also available on physical format (CD), you can grab links to that on the band’s social media accounts:
