McFarland writes and performs his own music with an accompanying band of friends which more often then not includes his producer Ryan Melone on drums. The pair have recently started writing the songs together and this upcoming decade is looking to be a promising one.
When I checked ‘Silent Truths’ I just fell in love with all the guitar lines and the brilliance of the atmospheric themes that music delivered with a nice blend of the ’90s and indie rock. For sure; I’d like to his powerful voice which reminds me of iconic bands.
‘Spilling Over Me’ is our main focus track here. The song is about “coping with emotions and trying to find a sense of purpose within nothing” – McFarland explained. The music is very harmonies really, and the stunning guitar licks make it shining, especially when his melodic 90’s vocal tone hits, it gives you an indie EARgasm! Usually, solos are my favourite part, and while I was waiting for it, he chose a very simple melody with a symbolic concept to the song theme which is brilliant indeed. “Publicity Stunt Double” is the first studio LP from Ian McFarland.
