Speak Low If You Speak Love announce album

speak low if you speak love - ryan graham

Speak Low If You Speak Love will release its 2nd studio album, Nearsighted, with Pure Noise Records on January 19th. Nearsighted will be the second, full-length album from Speak Low If You Speak Love, following Graham’s debut record Everything But What You Need, which was released in 2015 by Pure Noise Records.

Speaking about the new single, Graham says, “Enough was actually the last song written for the record, after a night of just jamming in the studio. After analyzing each song on the record, we decided it was missing a certain vibe, and Enough was the piece that was missing. Not only on the musical side of things, but I also felt as though there were a few ideas left unexplored. The “rush of blood” high that comes with specific relationships had been kicking around my brain for a while and I wanted to put it down to paper. Couldn’t be happier with how the song turned out.”

“Working on Nearsighted was an immense process,” Graham adds. “I wanted to experiment in a big way with my songwriting and my drummer Drew and I sat with each song for days, weeks, (even years on a handful of tunes) just toiling with each chord progression, making sure every note had purpose. I’m older now, and I’m always looking for new ways to express certain ideas, so I really feel we captured that with the sound of this record. It’s different enough to be interesting and fun, but still the Speak Low I think many have come to know. Our producer Aaron Marsh took these songs and really changed the game. It was a pleasure working with an artist I’ve looked up to for years.”
