Tribe Society’s Lucid Dreams a Must Check Album

Underrated is one of many words that come to mind when listening to the band Tribe Society, an alternative rock  band with a reinvented sound. The band’s album Lucid Dreams released on June 22nd, 2015 holds a packed punch. When talking to lead singer Gavin Merlot a few days ago, I asked if there were a lot of similarities and differences with Tribe Society compared to his former band Gentlemen Hall. “Sonically not really.” “This one is more rock, with a different era of production.”

Tribe Society’s band consists of

Gavin Merlot (vocalist and lead guitarist), Rory Given (bass guitarist), Brad Alderman, keyboard synthesizers Phil Boucher, on the drums and Seth Hachen on the flute, piccolo and synthesizers.

 

The album definitely holds something deep, and stoic that is creative and inspiring in which it fulfills a message of spiritually. Songs like “Kings”, “Outlaws” and “Ego” omit a feeling as it gives off the subtle nuance of “being done”, emotionally and emphatically, but rising up all at the same time. The songs that are off this album crack the code within, and give off the same theme throughout the entire album, and the sound grows and changes consistently.

The band has a nice platform to start out with that is for sure and it is exciting to see it all unravel. I am definitely inspired to hear more from this exciting band -Jake

Inspiration For Creation

Music is great for the soul and don’t you forget it. Be outside yourself and be something new, it’s the only thing music needs that it can expose itself to what is real in the world. No more fakies, no more wanna be’s. The world needs to have an exposure of more and more on how unique our world is and how talented we all are.

We need the next Bowie the next, Lennon, Madonna, you name it. There’s so much undiscovered talent that someone right now is writing beautiful words crafted only to be rejected and have their hopes crushed. We cannot let it happen, too many people hate on the wrong person, shut them down and give them the horrible thoughts that they cannot do it where they absolutely can!

Dealing with adversity is one thing, but hearing it all around you is another. We learn at such a certain age that confidence grows and knows who oneself really is. But it does not help when you are learning, and understanding your true self. Yes people will always give you a hard time and they are there for a reason to make you who you are, but please.

There needs to be the open mindedness and acceptance of whatever background you come from. Just because you don’t recognize it doesn’t give the right to discriminate it. Maybe it is this generation that gives off the feeling of over sensitivity. I don’t know but all I know is there needs to be more inspiration for those coming a long.

Long nights pondering on what could work or what couldn’t. Strumming a guitar, singing vocals so softly so no one hears. When will it be that the artist will break through?

This all is a piece about unknown talent, the talent we haven’t searched for because of our busy lives and schedules, the ones dying for a stream on the internet so the band can have their five to ten minutes of happiness. You make music to express yourself, and show creativity in the best way, not through other people’s eyes. If we played to what people wanted to hear we’d be living life as a gimmick, a phony, accepting to what people want to hear.

The worst part would be that we were playing to what people want will never satisfy yourself. There will always be room for someone else’s opinion on your sound.

Mute and just be mindless.
