“Accept” brings with it the same promise that a new day holds. Enveloping listeners in the scintillating colors of sunrise, “Accept” incorporates a diverse selection of alluring sounds and auditory textures, resulting in a soothing yet refreshing approach to a relatable theme: acceptance.
The track is an extraction off Host Bodies’ upcoming EP Diamondfruit and borrows its title from one of Jack Kerouac’s writing essentials, “Accept Loss Forever.” They reveal: “It’s a statement so crushing that the band felt it would be unjust to take out of context, but the sentiment pervades the song’s intermingling surrender and hope, as if the only way for new doors to open is to let old ones close.”
As the new year commences, “Accept” speaks to the raw part of us that desires to let go of the things we cannot change, acknowledge our losses, and to cling to the hope of tomorrow.
Beginning their creative journey together in 2006, Host Bodies have brought their vibrant energy to stages ever since, and, this year, they will share their latest release Diamondfruit, a dreamy electronic EP that finds calm and clarity amid hectic times. 100-percent self-recorded between California and Colorado and mixed and mastered with Ryan Kleeman (Overlap Studio) and Count Eldridge (Tycho, Radiohead),Diamondfruit provides a colorful panoramic soundtrack to heal our spirits to, ushering us into a state of welcome tranquility while helping us find our own personal refuge in a tumultuous, chaotic world.
