'2059' album (2015)

"2059 may be a leap into an uncertain future, but one thing's for sure, we'll be utterly beholden by its soundtrack"

Sea of Tranquility

2059 album cover.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we present the future...but not as you know it !
So what can we expect from 2059? Ten tracks lovingly crafted for your listening pleasure. There are themes of lost treasure (78rpm), a haunted dancehall (Dancefloor - inspired by the Blackpool Tower Ballroom), the shackles of human existence (Chains), the belief that we are all cosmically connected (Stars),  spirits from WW2 (Night of Memories), a long lost theme tune (Universe) and a curve-ball version of a 70's glam rock stomper by Slade (Coz I Luv U)... elements which combine to make this work something truly special.

Production and mastering were all handled Stateside by Dave Archer of Last Riff Studios, Cincinatti, USA. Thanks Dave :-)

We're also back with a new band  name...The Beholden. Rather sophisticated we think, hope you like it.

There's a limited edition CD version of the album for sale from this site, or you can download the tracks from Soundcloud, Bandcamp, iTunes and others. 

Pay or download for free, we don't mind either way. If you enjoy our music, please spread the word...we do this for love, we appreciate your support.

Videos created by Glyn to illustrate many of the album tracks can be viewed at his Youtube Channel.

2059

Glyn Bailey

When compared with previous Glyn Bailey albums, it's easy to hear there's been a conscious effort to circumvent the usual 'stylistic' musical approach ... the result is something not so easily pigeonholed. The 'Beholden' band sound is old fashioned yet strangely futuristic in both concept and execution.

Themes of lost treasure (78rpm), a haunted dancehall (Dancefloor - inspired by the Blackpool Tower Ballroom), the shackles of human existence (Chains), the belief that we are all cosmically connected (Stars), and a version of Slade's 70's glam rock stomper Coz I Luv U combine with others to make this work something very special.

The CD version is available exclusively from the artist, with online downloads via Bandcamp, iTunes and all the usual major retailers.
