Tight Rope Sky

An exploration of the Los Angeles based Progressive/Space/Post Rock band TIGHT ROPE SKY.......

From an explosive burst charged like a volatile form of an alchemical blend to an ethereal and serene standstill; A breathless impact. The calm before the storm...

Such are the motions felt by Tight Rope Sky's debut album "Strange New World", an alchemical mixture that unites progressive rock with the worlds of post-rock and ambient music to set the tone for an attractive and fresh approach to rock music. Providing the climate for mood and tension are complementary doses of textural dual guitar melodies [Daniel Fliegal (lead)/Archer Edwards (rhythm)] to pull listeners in; only to be thrown into an abyss of loud dissonant guitars in a frenzied cathartic fashion. Held down tight by a rhythm section [Richard Garay (bass)/Ryan Fultz (drums)] that weaves between a solid steadfast foundation into a wave of spacious ambiance and dreamlike atmosphere, this euphonious combustion is led by an operatic and emotional vocal performance [Tim Kranz] to balance and ground the listeners in with the bands’ cross-genre defining style.

Arriving from a diverse musical background (Berklee College of Music, Los Angeles Recording School, Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca [Spain], and Barbershop quintet) and numerous projects, the Los Angeles-based band completed their line up in the summer of 2011 to establish the core of what is Tight Rope Sky.

In early 2012 the group hit the studio to record their awaited debut album "Strange New World" (released June 9th, 2012). Mastered by the hands of talented producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me), the album delivers a variety of songs that feels both nostalgic and refreshing while at the same time setting the platform in which to explore the boundaries and depths of their musical art and vision.

The Silent Ocean
by TRS 2012

At the present time
I’m beside myself
Nothing seems to be as planned
So I am moving on
You had your chance before
You took to long the clocks run out on you

When the time comes to decide
I hope you’d wait a second longer
These feelings never will subside
My strength lies with my hunger

I’m under
your secret spell
And I wander
Along the silent ocean

It’s hard to hear the song
You never let me write
It hurts to know what could have been
The waves that crash along
An empty beach in motion
Make my aching heart feel numb

When the time comes to decide
I hope you’d wait a second longer
These feelings never will subside
My strength lies with my hunger

Don’t you give in and hurry up (Don’t You Give In)
Don’t you give in and hurry up
Don’t you give in and hurry up(Don’t You Give In)
Don’t you give in and hurry up
Don’t you give in and hurry up(Don’t You Give In)
Don’t you give in and hurry up
Don’t you give in and hurry up(Don’t You Give In)
Before I’m in too deep
{I am under your secret}
WOAH!                                    (Woah!)

Colourblind
by TRS 2012

Sands of time
Don’t make me wait another moment
Mabe I’m
destined for something greater
I’m hopin, I’m hopin

It’s no suprise
You’ve got me hynotized
Another try
And I’ll be on my
wayward motion, void emotion

Signs of the times
They’re gettin oh so sour
Here’s our chance to save a life
Pump the heart, ignite the fire
Seize the spark
It could be over in a minute
if you close your eyes

Colourblind
Black and grey is all I’ve known
Now here you are
Technicolor and devotion, devotion

It’s no suprise
You’ve got me hynotized
Another try
And I’ll be on my
wayward motion, void emotion

Signs of the times
They’re gettin oh so sour
Here’s our chance to save a life
Pump the heart, ignite the fire
Seize the spark
It could be over in a minute
if you close your eyes
