New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
After forming in Philly in 2017, indie rockers Judah Kim & The Assassination are releasing what acclaimed singer-songwriter Judah Kim describes as an album that is "a sonic reflection of the struggle of keeping it all together in the 21st Century" on May 19.
Citing influences including the bravado of Muse, the laidback flair of Rooney
and the guitar work of the Strokes, Kim wrote all the songs on the new album with the "shuffle mentality" of contemporary listeners in mind. "The songs on Dark Circles are a nod to diverse musical tastes, the near constant stream of information and the non-linear trajectory of life in the modern age," Kim reflects.
Band members Judah Kim, songwriting and vocals, Bob Cahill on bass, Isaac Windle on guitar, and Jon McNally on drums and percussion Kevin
Cox on guitar, keyboards and background vocals, all attended the same high school and after years of playing in other bands recently came together to collaborate on what they say is their most complex and mature project to date.
Staying close to their Philadelphia roots, the album was recorded and mixed at Kawari Sound in Wyncote with additional tracking at Kim's project studio, Scarlet Oak Sound.
The title track "Dark Circles" has been featured on Philadelphia radio station 104.5 FM and the album will be available wherever digital music is sold starting May 19. To celebrate the release, the group has released their debut video for "Dark Circles".
The official track listing for Dark Circles is as follows:
Why Don't You Shake That Beautiful Thing?
The band is planning to hit the road this August to perform select dates in support of the album, details to follow.
