Brooklyn musician Bill Gillim introduced the world to the devotional sounds of Megafortress back in 2012, promptly releasing a self-titled EP of lustrous, meditative hymns on Software Label. A whole new journey finds Gillim’s angelic falsetto taking a back seat to fuller, stripped down vocals on the beautifully twisted new single “Live In Grace.” Lush organ sounds sparsely glimmer through patches of delicate fuzz, giving him access to a realm of unearthed thoughts and fears trapped in stillness. In the midst of some heavy proclamations, Gillim’s ascension to ”Grace” is often shrouded in the fear of his own delusion. However, the contemplative wanderer still travels off the beaten path, hoping that through all the obscurity and discord, a more tangible picture presents itself and safely leads him to higher ground.
Megafortress’ debut album Believer will be released on November 4th via Driftless Recordings.
