ABOUT THE SONG: “Float Away” out now

This song is about good intentions gone wrong, when one tries grand gestures and ignores the small things. It’s about knowing how to preserve a relationship but not being able to do what it takes. In the end, the misguided love pushes others away instead of bringing them closer.

It has elements of synth pop, darkwave, and more traditional rock/pop with the harmonies. It is also unique because it mostly stays in the pocket. There are no high highs or low lows as the music represents a meditation on the loss of love at one’s own doing. I like to think of it as Depeche Mode strolling on the beach.

ABOUT THE Album: Glitter in Gravel released on August 4th

In their second full album, Glitter in Gravel, the Sizzos return with a shoegaze-infused, indie folk rock sound. The album’s atmosphere is buoyed by tight harmonies, vintage synth and new wave guitar blended with acoustic guitar and even banjo. Continuing to probe the depths of relationship and wonder at the world around us, Zaninovich pulls back the curtain and asks us to join him on a pilgrimage that is wistful, unguarded and searching. Love and rebirth glimmer through the album as Zananiovich and bandmates meditate on grief and hope following deep personal loss during the album’s two year creation. With a release targeted for August, the album will be available for
streaming and purchase in digital and vinyl formats.

There are incredible collaborators on this album. Kabir Green helped with production, bass, and backing vocals while Joe Dagostino played some guitar, banjo, slide, ebow, and co-wrote a few of the tunes. The local Portland legend Hannah Glavor sings on two of the songs and Alex Chapman, bassist for Jeffery Silverstein, plays acoustic guitar on three songs. Emily Beebe, who sang on the first album, also lends backing vocals. Finally, Erik Ian Walker who has recorded albums for decades on Bottom Feeder Records played piano on one tune.
