released their debut album Between Me and The Machine
in November of last year. The
band immediately went into experimental mode and explored a more bare bones sound and created a special, alternate take of their song “Seasick Sailor

“We’ve never been afraid to show the softer side of our influences, but this alternative version of ‘Seasick Sailor’ is the most bare bones we’ve ever been,” says bassist Robin Mariat. “Or at least it is for the first minute-and-a-half, before it starts building into a full-on orchestra with a full orchestra arrangement. So it’s probably not that bare bones after all. But it sure was a lot of fun to put this version together and add another sonic layer to the BMATM universe!”

Resolve’s new album is an adventure — told through the eyes of a space explorer searching for a new world to inhabit after being overwhelmed by the level of technological advancement on his own planet and internal struggles he experiences along the way, into the deepest corners of the heart and soul, a search for tranquillity in a world controlled via buttons and wires. It’s about the balance between the self-doubt that we’re losing who we are as a society and the fear of what we would be without the means to live our lives as they are right now. More than anything, it’s about humanity, connection, and community, three things that have inspired the band from the very beginning.
“It’s about finding your own place within a world that is becoming more and more dominated by machines,” Robin states. “We are part of the last generation that grew up without the Internet. Even though it feels natural to us, it’s also easy to still feel a little bit lost.”
Ultimately, Resolve have put together a record that transcends borders altogether. They’ve created a universe littered with as much darkness as light and as much hardship as hope.
The record is just the beginning of a truly spectacular voyage to the stratospher and it’s the sound of a band making the most brutally honest and beautifully human music they can.
