Australian Indie-Rock band, Calais, Seeing It All
Calais’ latest single, “Seeing It All”, is a pulsating synth rock track that moves with an abandoned air of freedom. The sound itself was meticulously crafting, weighing the heavy synth sound expertly with orchestrated band instrumentation, to build arcing, distorted guitars that soar above the aggressive baseline. All well keeping a dynamic pop-infused flair. It fits well with the subject matter, a relationship where two become one so desperately that they lose themselves in the process. As the music progresses, the discovery of that lost sense of self materializes, before the booming realization that they need to find themselves again hits hard.
Comprised of Tim Lollback (Vocals), Joseph Fleming (Guitar), Guy Stacey (Synth/Guitar), Liam Roberts (Bass), and William Mogg (Drums) — Calais came into their earliest incarnation in early 2013, heavy with influences from bands like Coldplay and Kings of Leon. As they grew and developed a fanbase in Brisbane, so did their sound, eventually morphing into glistening, modular synth rock sound that incorporates grungy guitars and coquettish pop.
