Long Beach, CA based indie rock group Fellow Robot have just premiered another taste of what’s to come from their debut album The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1. New single “Become the Sky” premiered on Spill Magazine, who called the song a “brooding and austere crawl…moody and organ heavy.” Fans can listen to the track here.
Lead vocalist Anthony Pedroza had this to say about the track: “Tracking for “Become the Sky” started one stormy night, the rain pounding the roof of the studio. I cranked my three tier organ to the loudest setting and played along with the storm. The song shows my frustration with some people not living to their fullest potential.”
“Become the Sky” is the second track to be released from the band’s forthcoming debut concept album, The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1, which will see a release on June 29th.
The album is a concept record, and the first part of a three part album series that explores a future where artificial intelligence has reached a pinnacle, and robots begin to document and chronicle humans and the music they make. The album was a collaborative effort between Pedroza, drummer Luis Renteria, and friends from the local Long Beach music scene.
“[The Robots Guide To Music] was a really fun and amazing body of music to record,” says drummer and main collaborator Luis, who also performs as “Ringo” in Beatles tribute band Britain’s Finest. “We worked with some of Long Beach’s best musicians and it was always a treat to be in studio, have a drink or two, and share stories. The recording part was a breeze—when you have musicians that know what they’re doing, all you really gotta do is set up a mic, and let them go at it. We actually recorded 30+ songs (the rest for Volumes 2 and 3), so there was a lot of time in studio.”
