Salem, Massachusetts based shoegaze project narrowcast. is the new collaboration between vocalist Joseph Boynton (Transit) and instrumentalist Matthew Morin (Aviator). Their debut single, “the ones who fell through”, is co-produced and recorded by Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday and showcases all the band’s elements fused into one song. The track blends the balance of layered atmospheric guitars with a calming voice and lyrics that are emotionally influenced by what is unknown, all being encompassed by a genuine emotional message delivered by Boynton.
The song came about as a true act of remote collaboration. “This Single was written with artist from Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Colorado. We started with just an acoustic/vocals and built from there,” explains Morin. “I walked around with headphones and edited most of it from my phone,” adds Boynton, ““I wanted to challenge myself by writing a complete song in 20 minutes.”
narrowcast. began as a series of demos in 2016 by Boynton who, after being the lead singer of Transit, had been involved in a number of musical endeavors that had all ended. Embarking on a new sound that would focus on the elements of shoegaze and dream rock with a nostalgic impact, he showed the demos to Morin, who’s band Aviator would often play with Transit. Together with a group of talented musicians and producers, including Kayla Morin, Rob Verosko, Aviv Marotz, Joseph Campbell, Zach Weeks, Gage Owens, & Jon Markson, Boynton and Morin are ready to show the world the gorgeous, layered dream pop of narrowcast.
