Foldersnacks is a Brooklyn-based band featuring original music by four time ASCAP award winning composer Jesse Elder, performed by Zack Foley (lead vocals), Jesse Elder (keys/vocals), Ryan Ferreira (guitar), Chris Tordini (bass), Devin Gray (drums), Scott Tixier (violin), Matt Parker (saxophone/flute) and Emilie Weibel (vocals). The music is new, drawing influences from rock, jazz, classical, experimental, and many other genres, with an emphasis on honesty. The music is very personal in nature, but it's ripe with many pieces of insight that are universally applicable.
When We Arrive offers the listener an opportunity to get lost inside 12 pieces of music that express a broad array of elements such as: stories, chants, triumphs, inner and outer space, earth, rain, fire, sky, nature, visuals, time, layers, love, pain, dimension, rebellion, abstraction, aliens, questions, humor, intensity, celebration, life and death, wailing guitars, throbbing bass lines, gratifying drum beats, flexible and expressive vocals, choral passages, carefully sculpted musical atmospheres, raw dirt, etc... If you are an adventurous listener with an appetite for the unknown, we welcome you to find an hour to get comfortable, put this record on loud in your favorite listening environment, and dive in.
As gratifying as the process of creating this record was, we made it for you, and we hope you find something in here to take with you.
