A Town Called Elsewhere marks the second album from Philadelphia-based experimental collective, Killiam Shakespeare. Under the leadership of Corey Bernhard and Steve McKie, Killiam Shakespeare’s genre-blending beats and futuristic, orchestral sound are on full display across the 40-minute release.
A true a labor of love, A Town Called Elsewhere pieces together months of studio jams, experimental improvisation, and heady beats to create Killiam Shakespeare’s most evolved project to date. Utilizing vintage and live instrumentation, ATCE fuses futuristic sensibilities with hints of soul, jazz, hip hop, and electronic. Layered and complex, each listen provides a new sound, a new moment, and a new opportunity for the listener to reflect on their own journey.
Though singles abound, A Town Called Elsewhere is an album in the truest sense; meant to be heard in its entirety, each song transitions into to the next. Propelled by analog synths, lush strings, crisp percussion and progressive ideals, the record is a testament to the band’s musical dexterity that encapsulates Killiam’s musical evolution to date.
With A Town Called Elsewhere, Bernhard and McKie continue to master their craft and grow as producers and musicians, cementing Killiam Shakespeare as a collective of true visionaries.
