Episode 1: "Coming of Age" by Bomethius
"Kill the alarm, but mind the ticking."
With this line, Bomethius carves a unique, meaningful space for his beautiful song, "Coming of Age." A thoughtful exploration of the human relationship with time and tradition, "Coming of Age" goes from a guitar-and-vocal contemplation to a fully produced manifestation of the human reaction to pressure. In this episode, host Emmeline and Bomethius explore the themes that drive the song's composition, from the lyrics he wrote and threw away to the extensive time spent recording the drums to ensure the perfect delivery. A conversation about a song quickly becomes an exploration of God, time, authority, and the absurdity of the human experience--with lots of silly voices, too.
