The song + clip feature JT Cavey of Erra. While Erra were working on new material in a nearby town, ASLW convinced Cavey to drive to Philadelphia on an off-day to shoot his part for the video.
“‘Bloom’ follows a couple’s relationship throughout the four seasons of the year. It covers the struggles and hardships of long-distance romance. The duo relishes the time they physically have together, but fear that this won’t be enough to sustain their emotional bond,” the band says.
Mystic Auras is a concept album that sets out to uncover the things we desire and why we are drawn to them. Lyrical content ranges from the plights of socioeconomic status quo, depression, and the stigma of mental illness to the deconstruction of personal and intimate relationships. These are all common themes that are explored in some light throughout the progression of the album. The LP features notable guest appearances from JT Cavey (Erra), Booka Nile (Make Them Suffer), Brian Wille (Currents), and Mattéo Gelsomino (Novelists).
The record is jam-packed with soaring choruses and some ambient guitar work. The overall sound is both technical and modern — the dual vocal styles between brothers Al and Nick Boltz offer a unique perspective on each song. Mystic Auras was produced by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio.
