Euclid C Finder, a mathgrind trio from Baltimore, announces the release of their eagerly awaited debut album, “The Mirror, My Weapon, I Love You,” scheduled to launch on October 27th under the banner of Dark Trail Records. The album, which is available on 12″ vinyl, carries the production stamp of Zach Weeks, who recorded and mixed the epic offering at God City. Today, we’re stoked to give you their newest jam called “Unkle Kracker Is The Matrix”!
The track is about the duality of a person’s mental state: sometimes being easily distracted and unfocused, and at other times being excessively concentrated on a particular subject or activity. This state of hyperfocus, as described, can lead the individual to delve deep into subjects that might not have any direct positive impact on their life.
“Unkle Kracker Is The Matrix” captures the experience of becoming engrossed in these topics, potentially to the point of neglecting other responsibilities or priorities. It’s a commentary on the allure of diving deep into something, perhaps as a form of escapism or as a way to feel a sense of purpose and achievement, even if that thing doesn’t necessarily bring any tangible benefit. It speaks to the human tendency to sometimes become lost in the minutiae, potentially as a way to avoid larger, more pressing issues in life.
“The Mirror, My Weapon, I Love You” delves deep into the emotions of anxiety, isolation, suicidal ideation, and an obsessive preoccupation with self-neglect. It is evident that each track on this album has been curated with intense thought and introspection, transforming personal experiences into a musical journey for the listeners.
A sneak peek into the album via their first single and its corresponding music video, “Tony Bennett’s Tape Machine Does NOT Like Mathcore,” showcases the depth and ferocity of the album.
Mike Mehl, the lead vocalist, provides insight into the inspiration behind “Tony Bennett’s Tape Machine Does NOT Like Mathcore,” describing a battle with an intrusive inner voice that challenges his existence. He alludes to this struggle in the lyricism of the song, making it a powerful testament to his personal journey.
Euclid C Finder, which started as a one-man band in 2017, has evolved into a force to be reckoned with, both in terms of their musical prowess and their emotional depth. With this album, they not only highlight their growth as artists but also their vulnerability as human beings, taking listeners on a journey of healing and self-acceptance.
Fans can pre-order “The Mirror, My Weapon, I Love You” on vinyl and look forward to its official release at the end of the month.
