Today As Tomorrow is one of the more interesting artists I’ve come across so far on Supernova.com. Their ethereal, ambient alternative sound is a combination of Jamie Flarity and Blake Ewing’s influence, who “both sort of play whatever is necessary to get the right sounds we are going for on a particular song be it guitar, bells, drums, piano, etc.”
Today as Tomorrow - Trees For Your Forest
Besides having an incredibly surreal assortment of songs, their sound is both instrumentally and vocally mature, with a well-developed sense of style. Recently hitting the top of Supernova’s Weekly Top 10 Chart, they caught my attention and were soon being added to my friends’ playlists as well.
With such an infectious quality of sound, I had to interview the guys behind this music to see just what went into the creative process behind Today As Tomorrow.
So what is the band’s history? How’d you guys come to where you stand today?
We worked day jobs together originally, and in February 2004, we started getting together after work to just play around on acoustic guitars and that led to us wanting to write our own stuff – as we found we really worked well together. After a few months of writing/rehearsing we started a band called The Code Fifty, which lasted for a couple of years and we put out a few demos under that name along the way.
We kind of felt like we had done all we could do with the type of music we were writing and performing under that name, and so we eventually started the new band, with a new purpose and sound.
How would you describe your band’s sound, and how is it unique?
From indie rock to classical music, we have a lot of influences and are interested in many things, musically. So generally, our sound is a combination of these influences. We tend toward atmospheric, layered sounds with many simultaneous melodies which hopefully give the listener something new to hear every time.
What is the most rewarding thing about being in a band?
For us, it's the creative outlet and getting to work hard doing something we both love. It's always about creating something that hopefully moves people in some way.
How do you want people to perceive your band/music?
We kind of would like for people to think of our music as a type of shelter. A place
they can come to when they need help or just to get away from it all for a while.
