ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stealing The Sun is "philosopher pop", heavy with texture, rhythm, darkness and light. From the first notes of Silver Thread to the last chord of No Time, this album is a Promethean journey where the listener is encouraged to grasp the Sun itself and steal it from the gods.

Stealing The Sun is the album I've been wanting to make for the last ten years. Filled with a wide spectrum of synth textures, it's an exploration of epiphany and change viewed through the lens of modern electronic vocal pop.

Diverse elements like the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft, Native American traditions and Greek mythology combine into something strange, personally engaging, and hopefully "greater than the sum of its parts"

A Real Gem
When Carbon111's most recent release was promoted on the artist's blog, I thought I would give a couple of tracks a try. It is rare that I find myself really grabbed by independent synth pop releases these days. But in this case I found myself listening to all of the tracks straight through... and then listening to them twice more. Carbon111 has managed to resurrect some of the best elements of early 80s synth pop without sounding dated. His sound is very much his own, and yet one can clearly hear echoes of Eno, Thomas Dolby, and Bill Nelson. His lyrical work fits quite well in that company too. But this is not just a throwback to synth masters of times past. Tracks like "Strangeness" wander into more contemporary territory. I highly recommend Stealing the Sun. You won't be disappointed.
