We have been away from Alchemist for a while but it seems like the ever industrious and prolific Austin Lee Wood keeps bringing us back to life. He has a new free single to check out and it showcases his ability to continue to evolve and perfect his musical journey’s offspring. It’s fun to hear him assume more of the front man position in his own compositions and to come into his own as a vocalist and songwriter. Austin describes the song thusly “Close My Eyes is about human insecurities, imposed by courtships with one I have immense emotional constructs toward.
A way of transcending said tenebrous emotions is by opening ones eyes to the temporaries that life is. And by embracing all uncertainties encountered throughout ones explorations. I strive to bring comfort to those existing with said challenges. In hopes they too can overlook the discomfort & vulnerability that comes with love.” The song is a single from his second solo ep entitled “MOON MILK” scheduled for release in fall of 2013. Close your eyes and enjoy.
