When bands talk of going on a journey together, they normally mean hitting the road and having adventures in the back of a van, Encoded however, decided to remove as many barriers to their journey as possible. With 3 of the 4 band members all living together, a cultural mix that spans from Milton Keynes to Perth (Scotland), from Bournemouth to Poland breathes its way into their socially conscious musical narrative.
From their creative hotbed in South London, Encoded have crafted their new EP, entitled ‘Psychosis’, which is set for release this coming May. Ahead of the EP, the band are planning to unleash some of the tracks, with the first ‘Our Faith Has Gone’ hitting the streets on 23rd March.
The Encoded sound hears influences from a diverse mix, with the socially aggressive nature of Rage Against The Machine, combined with the artistic temperament of Muse, Encoded play music that sounds like it feels, raw and real.
Vocalist Alex introduces the new track ‘Our Faith Has Gone’:
“The structure of our society is broken and disjointed. We are living in an age when a whole generation has lost all faith in the very system that governs the fabric of our culture.
The time is now, for rebellion, and awakening to the reality in which we have been dealt.
‘Our Faith Has Gone’ attempts to portray this predicament in the only way we know how.”
Encoded released a track in 2017 which doesn’t feature on the EP, check out the video for ‘Just Let Go’ now:
