The Raleigh, North Carolina post-rock band Old Solar has always been firmly rooted in conceptual foundations and the evolution of ideas. Their albums have explored the cycles of life: the changing of the seasons, death and rebirth, so it’s only fitting their upcoming release Quiet Prayers is a merging of old and new, a fresh walk over familiar ground.
Beginning its existence in 2017 as an EP of minimalist ambient compositions written by guitarist Travis Brooks, who was at the time still working as a solo artist behind the Old Solar moniker, Quiet Prayers was ripe for reconsideration once William Baker and Evan King joined as full-time members for 2019’s SEE.
The album reemerges now with further fleshed out arrangements, though its presentation honors the original form, maintaining a softer spirit in contrast to the breathtaking scope of its predecessor.
Listen to the first single from Quiet Prayers (redux) titled ‘Be Still, and Know That I Am’, featured on the freshly released Hemispheres: Volume VI compilation by A Thousand Arms (January 28th, 2022).
