Paleosonik is a collaboration formed by musicians formerly of The Beyond (UK) and Los Angeles based song-writer/producer Chris Witte, aka Highrise Empire. They came across each other's music online. Such was the mutual admiration that they decided to experiment at making music together combining their song-writing, performing and production skills.
An inspirational exchange of ideas and melodies soon resulted in their first single "Missin' You". Based on an array of magnificent guitar riffs by Blaugreen the song features distinctive vocals and beautifully atmospheric instrumentation by Chris Witte.
The sound this collaboration has created is as rich and expressive as it is innovative. The way the dark, menacingly bluesy guitar solo is adorned with electronic elements is positively unique.
Soon after a "The Way Through" was released as a single - a song stemming from another unusual guitar riff, in which Chris' delicate, contemplative, vocal style and brilliant lyrics come into their own, contrasted by nervy and tense choruses sung by Blaugreen. Once again the band created an incredible combination of an electronic arrangement and guitar sounds, such as slide guitar, which seemingly belong on a different planet, in musical terms.
In the following month or so work was completed on three more tracks, leading up to the release of the band's debut EP also entitled "The Way Through" - coming out Spring 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital platforms through Smart Note Records.
