EP of the week - Scattered Ashes All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

Following on from 2021's Parallel Lines EP, SCATTERED ASHES have released new EP All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

It addresses the constant state of flux we find ourselves in as members of modern society due to technology, consumerism, and the fickle nature of human beings. Across the EP the band reflect on the more destructive outcomes of these aspects such as racism, drug addiction, apathy, and greed. The EP also considers the more positive aspects of the shared human experience such as intimacy, growth and self-redemption. “There was a lot of serendipity on this record and at times it felt like we were expelling a lot of demons,” says Dalton. “This record was special, the words and the music just flew out, it felt different.”
