about

The Singular’s second recording, Death by Radio, was recorded at soft touch studio, a basement recording space operated by good friend of the band, Andy Putch. This was the bands final recording to feature their original bass player, Tim. While more polished sounding than their first EP, Death by Radio did not garner nearly as much commercial attention as the bands debut EP, even though it contains what front man James Pequignot considers to be their most radio friendly track, Super Highway. This recording contains fan favorites, One Small Step, a song about Neil Armstrong, and Styrene, the story of a man dying as the result of a Styrene chemical spill. Pequignot commissioned friend, classmate, and profoundly talented artist Adri Wichert to create the cover.

about

The Singular Akron, Ohio

The Singular is a band that holds high the value of music as an experience and strives to make a good one for anyone who cares to listen. As a modest four piece rock band they produce a sound that can be described as cavernous and overwhelming. They triumph the art of storytelling through song, and always invite their audience along with them on a musical journey. ... more

Track Name: One Small Step
I stabbed our flag into the ground
And then I read the words aloud
They did not come out the way I wrote them down

I watched the stars from on the moon
I knew we’d have to head home soon
But we did not want to move

I hear the voices in the dark
I watch the angels spread their wings
Someday my ashes they will fly
But one small step will never die
Though you may not remember me
Track Name: Styrene
Styrene, Styrene
Put your hands upon me
Close my eyes so I can see
The air that pulls the gravity
Styrene

Styrene, Styrene
I’m slowly floating out of me
To leave this wreck behind me
And disappear completely
Styrene

Blind my eyes
Turn the speakers loud and deafen me
Grind my senses down
Release the Styrene
Styrene release me

Styrene, Styrene
Put your arms around me
Close my eyes so I can see
Einstein’s relativity
And how it all applies to me
My moment in eternity
Is burning out in front of me
Thanks to Styrene
Track Name: Super Highway
Stretch your arms from coast to coast
Father son and Holy Ghost
It’s never gonna be this good again

Put your keys in the ignition
Buy the new revised edition
We ain’t got the money but the money’s got to spend

So move along
Until a super highway brings you home

Wars were won and wrote the books
But some details were overlooked
The truth is one more story never told

I’ve traveled long forgotten nodes
Neglected dirt and gravel roads
There’s just one place i never got to go

So move along
Until a superhighway brings you home

Polish all the cars
Cover all the scars
Make it look real pretty
Like the people on TV

But on select occasions
I’ll nurture my abrasion
I’ll hold it like a trophy up for all the world to see
it isn’t good, it isn’t bad, it’s only me

Until a superhighway brings you home
Track Name: Death by Radio
Hello?
Are you listening?
The radio will tell you how to feel
And the glow of the television
Will tuck you in
And show you how to heal

Hello?
Can you hear me?
I’m screaming and I’m only feet away
But you’re consumed by
A soulless flicker
And what talking heads in magic boxes say

But sometimes it’s easier
To tune in and turn away
But the pictures are so much nicer
Than the ugly words that people say

Hello?
Track Name: Sad Suite
I saw you in my dream
I couldn’t see your face but I believed
You were so alive
Like a phoenix from the ashes rise

You go on and on…

Floating out with you among the stars
You go on forever but I can only go so far

I don’t seem to mind
The rain is gone, the well is dry
I don’t think I could cry to save my mother’s life

My eyelids sewn up tight
I just pretend that everything’s all right
I don’t think I could cry
The rain is gone, the well is dry

But if I could cry I would cry for you
And if I could mourn I would mourn for you
