Connecticut post-rockers The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die released its new EP, “Between Bodies,” earlier this month. “Between Bodies” is a collaboration with spoken word artist Chris Zizzamia and was recorded by the band’s guitarist Chris Teti at his Silver Bullet Studios.
“Between Bodies” finds the indie collective simultaneously reaching the most quintessential version of their cinematic, twilit sound while challenging both themselves and the listener. The album pairs compelling, impressionist post-rock landscape with narratives of love, death, existentialism and the human condition. Yet despite the experimental nature of the EP, The World Is a Beautiful Place has managed to craft what is likely their most melodic, infectious work thus far. Between Bodies presents a fascinating snapshot of one of the most creative bands currently writing music, unafraid to push against boundaries in their inspired explorations.
The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are playing at the Broadberry with The Hotelier, Rozwell Kid and Posture & the Grizzly on Monday, Oct. 27.
