California trio Staring Into Nothing released their album Power via Antares Records in November 2017, featuring twelve tracks of politically minded, piano-focused prog rock. The single “Big Brother” shows their penchant for commentary, but the lyrics are a little too “on the nose” for my taste:
Opening track “Puritans” was more nuanced and included some nods to Pink Floyd. The musical left turn around 3:15 was surprising, but perhaps shouldn’t have been unexpected for the genre.
Savannah Rogers does a nice job vocally on the ambitious 18-minute track “Towers”:
If you enjoy Staring Into Nothing’s music, you’re in luck — the band is working on not one but two follow-up albums to Power, aptly titled Love and War. With the current political climate, this socially conscious group will have no shortage of inspiration!
