i am LoveHappy Thanksgiving to all the listeners and long-time supporters of Insomnia Radio who celebrate the holiday in Canada and the States. The best way we know to give thanks is with a excellent new single from the upcoming self-titled album from Philadelphia band i am Love, set for official release on Jan 15, 2015. The self-defined folkster band’s progressive acoustic approach uses cello, woodwinds, zither, sax and reverb to create “the archaic sound of the future”.

Vocalist/guitartist Josh Christopher’s musical tastes lean towards the theatrical, classic indie music, and vaudevillian. Will goes for the heavier stuff like grunge and psychedelic-surf rock, and Kris’ tastes venture into the spacious, melody-driven, rhythmic, and anything psychedelic. The band’s sound is defined by the interweaving of all those genres.

“We make music to inspire people to be their highest selves, to know that they too can create. I play an autoharp to show people that you can use anything to make songs, it’s about expression in it’s purest form,” says Christopher.

The group released an album featuring their new revamped sound in the beginning of 2014, and have been touring throughout the year which included SXSW, NXNE, CMJ, and the Brandywine Folk Festival. They’ll continue to tour the country throughout the beginning of 2015, and then bring their music across the pond into Europe.

Be sure to check out their well done music video for “Ghost in the Hallway” which we’ve embedded below.
