‘Leaving’ (out now) is Slow Arpeggio’s latest album. It’s filled with angst, thoughts, passing notes, and journal entries for the universe. Julian Sarkissian is this project, and with it, it’s one of his aims to perpetuate feelings of relations that are anonymous but still full of flavor.
“The new album is centered around loss; about how it feels to let someone go and the realization that everything—including yourself—goes eventually. And, I’m okay with jumping into these darker places, but it’s not always doom and gloom. I’m a hopeful person!”
Is it too late?? That’s the crux. Can there be a change that will push you towards another complex of dignity?
Slow Arpeggio is golden theatrics and also a synth placed electro new wave, in kind.
Julian’s keen instincts are in the LP’s sleeves for observation. It’s fabulous. It’s of another generation.
It’s worth your time. And ours.
