Public Memory is a NYC-based project spearheaded by Robert Toher that has just announced that its second record is called Demolition and comes out through Felte on November 9th. By way of introduction to the new record he has shared the opening track, 'The Line', which he describes by saying:

"This song is about coming to terms with the fact that things didn't turn out the way you had expected them to. Particularly in regard to a partnership/relationship... In my mind, it's a dream where a guide, be it a future or different version of the self - or something else, takes your hand and you're flying above the town you grew up in, visiting past parts of your life, people you have known, interactions you've had, seeing things from a vantage point that was unavailable until now."

He has managed to bring these elements to life through dark and hovering synths, glued together by a constant click. As more layers are added to the mix, 'The Line' becomes a haze of spiritual sounds, with Toher's voice calling out from within the mist. The effect is aural levitation of the sort that is likely to give you the chills - but in a very good way. Take a listen below.
