Vox Rea

Vox Rea supplies a soundtrack to the confusion and euphoria of coming of age in a postmodern world. Citing influences that range from Florence and the Machine to Friedrich Nietzsche, the band draws inspiration from a mix of nostalgia for times past and life in a modern day world in turmoil. Fascinated by the contradictions inherent in the human experience, the album is a celebration of free will and an ode to the paralyzing nature of choice. It is both the intoxicating night roaming and the guilty morning after, a revelry in excess and an exercise in solemn self-reflection. The album chronicles the odyssey of a group of artists trying to come to terms with their generation’s place in the human story. Themes of addiction, self-doubt, lust, identity, independence and grief form the undercurrent of lyrics that are deeply introspective. Hell bent on creating a meaningful life amidst the siren songs of consumerism and efficiency, Vox Rea wonders what it really means to be free.
