Republic of Heaven
The Republic of Heaven is the first full-length release from husband-and-wife band The Endless, based in Los Feliz, CA. After two successful EPs, 2002's Grumpy Ghost and 2003's ...and i'm the queen of the moon, the duo release their most sonically and emotionally complex work yet: a haunting blend of electronic and alternative rock, rich in imagery and hailing from the tradition of such musical innovators as Kate Bush, Jane Siberry, Poe, and This Mortal Coil. Adriana and David Róze work as a symbiotic unit: lovers, band mates, best friends, and co-creators. As Legends Magazine describes it, 'It's almost like these two put everything out there - the persons they are, their entire being...some of the songs appear that personal. Naked indeed.' The album's thematic content came forth following the death of Adriana's mother to cancer: a struggle to understand and accept grief, and the inevitable push to move forward and embrace life after loss. There is love here, and light, and a deep contentment in finding one's place in a world responsible for it's own actions, a 'republic of heaven.' David Róze's warm and melodic guitars and keyboards are the perfect palette for Adriana's silvery, plaintive vocals. Produced by David and Adriana, released by Queen of the Moon Music, and mastered by Matt Brown of Trespassers William, we invite you to experience the music of The Endless, which celebrated author Neil Gaiman called 'aetherial, intelligent, and catchy at the same time.'
