Theodore on NPR’s All Songs Considered

New album set for release on November 2

NPR’S All Songs Considered announces Theodore’s upcoming album Inner Dynamics, and premieres third single “Disorientation”

“There’s something kind of magic about him, his music we both remarked, and remarked to him, had this beautiful feeling of Pink Floyd to it, like lots of adventure. There’s lots of external sounds that mix in that aren’t necessarily musical but they become musical in the form that Theodore’s presents his music.” – Bob Boilen, NPR Music, All Songs Considered

On September 11, Theodore premiered his third single “Disorientation” and announced the release date for his cascading LP Inner Dynamics on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Where his previous album It Is But It’s Not attempted to explore the interaction of opposing elements in the universe, Inner Dynamics finds Theodore looking inward to examine the dualities of his own identity in search of new creative potential. “Disorientation” begins with mystifying whispers, and a pulsating bass until Theodore’s heavy-hearted voice brings in dream-induced dramatism. Inner Dynamics features production by Vagelis Moschos and is set to be released on November 2.

“On It Is But It’s Not, I tried to explore how the opposite elements in the universe interact, how they fight and how without the one you can’t have the other.” Theodore says, adding, “For Inner Dynamics, I was trying to express my urge to connect the conscious and subconscious part of myself so I can be creative. It’s an understanding that humans are not just one thing, and they shouldn’t try to hide certain elements of their personality because society likes to put labels of who we are. It’s the different sides of my self that makes who I am.”

Theodore’s intoxicating LP Inner Dynamics is an emotional whirlwind of kaleidoscopic texture; “Disorientationbegins with mystifying whispers, and a pulsating bass until Theodore’s heavy-hearted voice brings in dream-induced dramatism. The gentle yet thought provoking “Alcyoneis soaked in glimmering pianos and a composed atmosphere. “Floating is an ethereal merging between the ocean and the sky, Theodore’s powerful, reverb-drenched vocal delivery portrays his ability to lull and immerse simultaneously, before erupting into a driving post-rock sections. The album’s closer, “Fluttering,” is a sincere reflection on the album as a whole; concise percussion and drum rolls sit beneath emotive pianos and synthesizer bliss.
