It is with true joy I announce that my latest album as TRD is released! It has been a work in progress building up over the last five years, and now it is finally finished and ready for your eardrums and minds!
You can find a free download from Ektoplazm, as usual, but do feel free to donate any sum you are capable to on my bandcamp page! Even the smallest donation puts a smile on my face 🙂
Escorting you through the swamps of reality, Lucid Dreaming is a deep and personal ride through the subjective depth of a single mind. Developed over five years, this album describes a personal struggle expressed through hopeful harmonies, challenged by a looming darkness that seem to never fully cease its hold. The resulting journey is an emotional 45 minute ride through the dreams of the creator, TRD, illustrating personal development through melodic expression. Although danceable throughout, providing the listener with dense, atmospheric psychedelic trance spanning 105–145 BPM, the artist intends for this album to be listened in solitude by individuals seeking music that evokes questions rather than providing answers. In comparison to TRD’s last album, Apostles Of The Universe, this one is faster, more demanding, and perhaps even more rewarding. Mastered by Colin Bennun @ The Stooodio, U.K., with original photography by Hanna Täubers Grahn.
