Indie post-rock band, Emerald Portal released their latest single, “All The Running,” a unique and cinematic storytelling track. The track is the first single off of the band’s forthcoming EP, Trouble In Paradise and is now available for download and streaming worldwide.
Emerald Portal strives to make music that goes beyond the conventional pop structure and takes you on a journey. With a heavy cinematic influence, “All The Running” is a thought-provoking track that transports listeners to new worlds. The song kicks off with soft synthesizers that build up to a subtle electric sound mixed with indie rock influences. Layered with piano and an electric guitar solo, the unique track creates a calming and carefree vibe. Emerald Portal recruited the help of Jason Rosen, of Los Angeles indie-electronic duo, Smoke Season, to produce the track at DTLA Recording Studios. They also enlisted drummer, Kyle Crane who has worked with Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and the Academy Award winning movie, Whiplash. “We’re trying to tell stories and make engaging music that transports you,” the band comments. Aside from beautifully unique vocals and intriguing storytelling lyrics, “All The Running” is a lush and imaginative track.
Emerald Portal, the duo consisting of Thomas Ouziel and Brad Rundblade, are two musicians who both became consumed with the arts at a young age. Ouziel from Paris, France and Rundblade from Crete, Greece, embarked on their own musical journeys until they crossed paths on a music video set in Los Angeles. The two had a lot in common as they both had backgrounds in music and film, and they quickly discovered their shared love for the arts and began collaborating on multiple music projects. Having already released an LP, their second project, Trouble In Paradise will be ready for release in Spring 2017.
“All The Running” is a raw post-rock song that acts as a portal to a different world. Emerald Portal continues to push the boundaries with their highly cinematic music. Download “All The Running” everywhere music is sold and keep up with their latest releases by visiting, EmeraldPortalMusic.com.
