THE SEARCH are back with the
second and final part of a retro-inspired journey that started in 2018
with the album “A Wave from the Sidelines”; the band’s new work
skillfully blends melodic pop sensibilities with reverberated sound
landscapes. With “Some Place Far Away”, Razmig Tekeyan – the
founder and currently sole member of THE SEARCH – offers a ten-track
dose of escapist pop music and invites everyone to indulge in his
world.
“Some Place Far Away” is a collection of songs
originally written on an acoustic guitar that Razmig Tekeyan has been
working on over a long period of time. Some of them date back 20 years
and, had they been recorded at that time, they would have sounded very
different since the band’s early work was dominated by
80’s-influenced new/dark wave and indie rock sound. 10 albums later
he once again replaces the guitars with synthesizers to conclude his
love letter to the sound of the 80s.

“Some Place Far Away”
is more than an 80s revival and presents new sides of the traditional
genre of Synthpop without carrying relics of the past into the new
decade. It’s an album for daydreamers who allow themselves to become
lost in their own thoughts and enjoy a faithful companion along the
way.

The album was recorded and produced by Razmig Tekeyan in
the band’s own studio in Uppsala (Sweden) and mastered by Tommy
Steuer (TS-Musix Studios, Leipzig – Germany).

“Some Place Far
Away” will be released on March 6, 2020 by Aenaos
Records.
