Santiago prog rockers Aisles have just released Upside Down, the second single off their fourth studio album Hawaii. Aisles’ guitarist and producer, Germán Vergara explains:
"Upside Down talks about a future society that has gained awareness of the tragedy that is losing the planet Earth and decides to begin again, living life in a completely different way. Emotionally it's a song about regret, but at the same time hope, happiness, and freedom.
Musically we wanted to convey the feeling of vertigo because these humans will live in cylinders that rotate on their axes generating gravity. It's a powerful song. Its energy comes mainly from the vocal performance and the piano lines to transmit the idea of change, transformation and freedom. It has one of the most original guitar solos we've ever written".Hawaii is a two-disc concept album about human colonies established in space after the destruction of the Earth. The LP will be released on July 29, 2016 via Presagio Records on CD and digitally, while the vinyl edition will be available in November. Preorder available in various formats and bundles on Aisles official website.
