Alexandre MARTORANO began writing his first compositions in 2004. After many band experiences as a teenager, the artist creates COLD LANDS. An atmospheric rock project in which he writes, composes and performs.
A first eponymous EP in January 2012 marks the official starting point of this adventure. It is then an album composed of 11 tracks, entitled “Inside”, which was released in 2013.
Rich of many concerts and various musical encounters, COLD LANDS return today to the front of the stage with a single “THE LIARS PRAYER”, as a preview of a new album to be released in 2019.
It is indeed through a music video, directed by Jeff Loch, that the project marks its comeback. A progressive song, mixing catchy sounds and rock riffs, entirely representative of what promises to be the future record.
On this release, Cold Lands comments:
“This first single highlights the duality between a hostile outside world, a prey to lies and evil, and an inner world in which sentimental and emotional authenticity subsists. A fight between the inner self and the reflection of the external self. This duality makes us abdicate, one way or another, in the lie, or the abandonment.”
The lyrics are intended to be both direct and suggestive, and let the listener forge a subjective view of the concept of this duality. There are also some dreamlike figures that belong to the atmospheric concept of COLD LANDS. They are one of the essential markers of the state of mind in which Alexandre MARTORANO evolves and composes songs.
While waiting for the new album of COLD LANDS, whose name is still unknown, discover without further delay the first single and music video, “THE LIARS PRAYER”. The single is now available on all digital platforms!
