Fourteen years on from their debut album, Hamilton, Ontario’s Allegories have crafted Endless, a dynamic and searching record that pulls inspiration from the entire history of electronic music and across the over/underground spectrum.
The record features “Funny Way,” which the band refers to as the album’s “beating heart.” The song holds a unique place in the duo’s catalogue as an ever evolving ballad undergirded by elegiac synths and steady beats.
“The two of us made this album in a vacuum, without anyone hearing a note of it for over five years,” the duo explains.
“That approach takes an almost arrogant level of belief but with a remove that allows you to make ruthless decisions. Nothing can be precious. You have to trust your ears after you’ve followed your heart.”
