The Mad Pride - Hope Is Gone

The Mad Pride - Hope Is Gone
Combining 60s psychedelia, folk noir, art rock, neoclassical and gothic post-punk, The Mad Pride has been described as haunting and ominous like Syd Barrett and David Bowie collaborating on a Tim Burton film soundtrack. Comparisons are often made to Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, Erik Satie, Opeth, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. It is the solo recording project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Rowan Galagher.

Since 2009 Rowan has made 3 original albums and he is currently releasing tracks from his 4th. He has moved from avant-garde psych-folk experimentation to cinematic soundscapes and towards a classical style of psychedelic rock. His DIY ethic motivated him to play the majority of the instruments himself and record them alone in his Wollongong based apartment.

With an uncompromising commitment to emotional authenticity and a wider goal of positive social change, Rowan is driven to make honest and progressive music. He is constantly pushing the boundaries of conventional genres and seeks to forge a new platform in the contemporary musical landscape. It would appear that he is succeeding at this as, aside from the aforementioned artists, Rowan's music has also been compared to Jacques Brel, Mr Bungle, Danny Elfman, Bach, Muse and David Sylvian.

About this track...

Hope Is Gone is a song written in a very dark place surrounded by almost insurmountable hurdles. It was written in 2008 before my first album was recorded but not released as I thought it was too depressing for an audience to handle.
