Slow Motion Picture’s debut In Memory Of… is an album covered in layers of hidden meanings and buried references to characters its listeners will never actually meet, yet still takes its audience on a journey of pure empathy. Each of the album's ten songs are based upon a ghost story that multi-instrumentalist/guitarist Brian Caesar (As Tall As Lions) wrote in his early twenties as a way to cope with the passing of his father. Filling each song with haunting vocal melodies, luscious orchestral accompaniment and endless layers of fuzz driven guitars, Caesar, along with former vocalist Lauren Edman (Sleepthief), developed a sound that blended the depth of modern film scores with an airy timbre reminiscent of the shoegaze bands of the early 90's.
Bringing in drummer Aaron Kelly, bassist Dan Timmons and keyboard/synth player Marco Talamo, enabled Edman and Caesar to finally bring these songs to the stage starting in 2013. Performing under the name For Every Story Untold, the five piece has played some of the most profound venues of New York and Brooklyn and has been getting a ton of buzz with their immense sound. They have previously landed opening slots for international touring acts including a sold out performance with Susanne Sundfør, and highly praised bands Owel, Color War and Salt Cathedral. The band has recently added the heart stopping voice of Scottish singer/multi-instrumentalist Anna Popplestone to its lineup and is looking forward to playing several dates in support of the upcoming LP [+]
