AS STRANGE AS ANGELS: Miracle Monday, 22 July 2019 21:18 by madseason
As Strange As Angels - Miracle

As Strange As Angels -the passion project of former Murder FM front man Norman Matthew- have released a new single and video Miracle as a follow up to their Top 40 Active Rock track Mirror Mirror (from last April's EP of the same name).

The song was co-written and produced by Sahaj Ticotin (Ra, Motley Cure, Starset, Sevendust, Meytal).

Norman says of Miracle: "Coming off the success of Mirror Mirror, the bar has been set and the pressure is high for the forthcoming single and video Miracle. Up to this point, Mirror Mirror was by far, the biggest evolution for me musically, lyrically, melodically and spiritually. I connected my soul to the song in ways I never thought I could. Miracle as a song, has a heavy and dark elegance to it. Video director Michael Carter and I wanted to bring the story and vibe of the song to life. Miracle taps into my own feelings of love -of searching for and waiting on my Miracle partner to arrive.

Miracle is an Alternative Rock anthem with a soul, addictive and emotional like everything Mr. Ticotin is involved in.

As Strange As Angels - Mirror Mirror

Dallas, Texas based As Strange As Angels is former Murder FM front man Norman Matthew's passion project. He has released a new single Mirror Mirror, and it's already been added to Spotify's Rock Hard and Loudwire's Weekly Wire playlist. The single is also the title track from the forthcoming debut EP, which drops on April 26.

After Murder FM went on hiatus in 2016, Norman focused on raising his son after a divorce rocked his personal life.  While juggling the work of running his music school, The Sound Foundation, and his fatherly duties, he found the turmoil that he was going through was beginning to come out in the music that he was writing.  "For the first time, rather than speaking to the song, I let the song speak to me. I had never written lyrics that were a parallel of my life. Then I realized, I have a voice, and I need to be a voice for the voiceless."  

The result of that reflection is the new 4 song EP Mirror Mirror, which Norman has aptly dubbed "heart rock": From the heart, for the heart, by the heart. Say what you feel, and feel what you say.

The title track was co-written and produced by former RA front man Sahaj Ticotin (Starset, Sevendust, Meytal). The other 3 tracks - Love and Death (which features CJ Pierce Of Drowning Pool on guitar), Days Go Bye, and Right Beside You were produced by Norman and Mick Kenney (Motionless In White).  The recording features a heavy and melodic sound that is instantly familiar and yet unique - and is unlike most of the other music that is currently out in the Rock world.

The video for Mirror Mirror premiered last Friday, March 15, on PureGrainAudio.com: check it out clicking on the image
