Framing Hanley’s new album The Sum Of Who We Are on Imagen Records is the band’s boldest artistic statement to date, capturing the essence of innocence and hope, light and darkness, struggle and determination. They have today announced a 14+ show at Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast for Friday 24th October. The album is a collection of modern alternative rock infused with undeniable pop hooks, heart-felt lyrics and huge choruses worthy of an arena size sing-a-long.
“Every band says that they feel like they're getting better with the years” states frontman Nixon. “So while I feel that's a trite statement, I can't deny it. We've never written as much material for an album as we did for this one. We had to cut so many songs that we felt were strong. We also recorded songs for the album that we felt weren't ‘there’ yet only to go back to the drawing board and get it right.”
The Sum Of Who We Are is a perfect soundtrack to the last two years of struggle and triumph the band has endured, leaving the listener with a feeling that every single song is the most important song the band has ever written.
The first single “Criminal” is a full on anthem, cleverly illustrating the trappings of circumstance in an exhausted relationship. Other songs like “Twisted Halos”, “Crooked Smiles”, “Rollercoaster", and “Crash & Burn”, have an honesty and underlying theme of finding beauty in the tragedy of loss, finding light in the total darkness and finding hope when there is nothing left.
