I Wanna (Free DL)
Lead singer Matt Molchany on the song: “I Wanna” was born in the midst of a sea change I saw in our local music and art scene–ideas were rippling and DIY spaces were popping up, changing the landscape. With this song I want(ed) to tell people it’s OK to be yourself, it’s OK to want to be active, it’s OK to express yourself freely, and do so responsibly. You’re going to get old–it’s out of your control, but if you want to you can choose to be wise, you can choose to benefit something and better yourself. It’s basically a positive-hardcore manifesto inside a pop(ish) song.
There Are No Goodbyes is the debut album from Bethlehem, PA quintet VoirVoir (pronounced v-wah v-wah). This very emotional unveiling– flushed with seamless, ever-flowing layers of intense vocals, keys, and 90s rock guitars– explores the interactions between people, how they behave, and the hope that we can all better ourselves. These themes come from both Smith and Molchany’s experiences as social workers, assisting the sick and mentally ill.
According to band co-founder April Smith, “this album was Matt and I finding the pretty in everything, even those things that look hopeless and impossible to fix.” This sentiment is reflected in the moods and rhythms throughout the album as somber soundscapes morph into hopeful, energized blasts of fuzzed-out sunlight.
