Post Rock/Ambient and Progressive/Indie 4-piece, Letters To Part, released their debut full-length entitled, A Human Curse last summer. The album was recorded at Iceman Studios under the direction of Daniel Colombo, who recorded, mixed and mastered the 8-track masterpiece. The album covers details about struggles we all endure in our lifetime, some more extreme then others, but a similarity of overcoming battles, whether it be from drug abuse, self mutilation, gambling, and the likes, Letters To Part build a story about how everyday we are living in an anxiety induced world. Lead singer Y’shua Ortiz-Escobedo expands on A Human Curse, by stating it “is a story about understanding true heartache, and trying to cope. Through vices that we all use. Trying to relieve some sort of symptom.” Fans can hear the entire album in full exclusively with Substream Magazine! Purchase A Human Curse HERE!
To celebrate the release of their record, the band has partnered with Ground Sounds Magazine to unveil their brand new music video for “Richard Scarry.” The song is about loving someone so much, that it pushes them away. The beginning of a relationship shows traits and qualities that eventually start to diminish over time, leading to a lack of confidence within one partner and causing the other to distance themselves completely. It causes a back and forth that can ultimately be too much and you begin to evaluate everything, realizing that while two people have grown together they have also grown apart.
Sometimes from the vulnerable moments, we can capture and create something wonderful. As is the case of Orlando based Post-Rock group, Letters to Part. Initially an outlet to cope with the tragic passing of Singer/Guitarist, Y’shua Ortiz-Escobedo’s cousin in 2010, he began to find himself crafting songs that illustrated his grieving process resulting in the release of the band’s EP back in 2012. Fast forward a few years, Letters To Part, consisting of Y’shua Ortiz-Escobedo (Singer/ Guitar), Hunter Gelsen (Guitar), Dustyn Murphy (Drums), and Chris Ramos (Bass) are thrilled to unveil their debut full-length A Human Curse out July 7, 2017.
