Description

Hydrazine Morning on CD

Daydreaming is dangerous, but the images that fuel the compelling, but dream-like urgency of the songs of Gravity Engine, are a product of that elusive state between waking and sleeping. "Some of the best lyrics come to me at that moment right before I lose consciousness," says Brad Wilcox, who is Gravity Engine. "Unfortunately, I don't always revive long enough to write them down." Fortunately for the listener, many of those lines were captured before sleep pulled him under. The music may be loosely called indie folk rock, but embodies much more. Influenced by the likes of the Pixies, The Replacements, Grant Lee Phillips, Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley and Blur, the style is diverse, but well contained within the gravitational pull of Wilcox's enthralling voice and lyrics. Gravity Engine's debut release has been compared to Radiohead in review and by fans. Written and recorded in Los Angeles, "hydrazine morning" is heavily immersed in the psyche of the city, but also infused with a deep longing to be elsewhere. An acoustic guitar forms the basis of the sound of this seven-track album and songs vary in structure from insistent rock choruses ("A Million Places") to wistful haunting melodies ("My Projection TV"). Aptly named for a first album, hydrazine is a chemical compound used in rocket fuel and essential for lift-off.
