This Broken Beat
"there is a fine line between living life on the edge and living to play it safe. To truly be alive calls for some risks, as well as direction for those risks. We will inevitably get caught up in ideas of irrelevance years down the road, and make mistakes out of in-the-moment emotions, but it's all to illuminate the beauty of choice & freewill itself. Because you need to know what's standard, before you can explore. You'll need to feel the tension, before you can release. It's a sort of stimulation, the way our minds behave. So you have to taste what's bitter so you can taste what's sweet & you'll have to hear what's broken, before you make a beat"
Nightlove
Retro pop artist from Denver, Colorado
OptycNerd
I got into real, conscious hip hop in late high school, and started cookin Garageband Beatz in 2008. I Joined a mini hip hop club that same year, learning more and more about the anatomy of a rhyme. I eventually set sail for music school in Denver. I now actively make several types of music including jazz piano, A cappella, indie, and hip hop.
Holdfast
HoldFast.
Noun
1. something used to hold or secure a thing in place; a catch, hook, clamp, etc.
On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done. & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
