Nikolas Escudero

Escudero's music is lyrically focused, bolstered by minimal chord progressions and instrumentation. There is a lot of room in the music, tones that ease into melodies and rhythms that carry but do not distract.

Written during a move from the Bay Area to Los Angeles, 'Synthesis' is an album of transition. Thematically, there is a struggle to understand how to navigate the dialectical of a subject, the interminable balance of what we hold as the self and what others perceive. The songs make reference to Big Star, Elliott Smith, Hegelian philosophy, ego development, the ocean, and a myriad of other things found during a time of healing. Recorded in an annexed room of the house he was raised in, the record came from a deep stillness.
