Aloud Los Angeles, California

Great music has something it's almost impossible to capture: soul. Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa have been the soul of Aloud since they were teenagers in Miami. A shared passion for rock classics like The Beatles, Oasis, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding led the pair to start writing and recording their own songs. The two pursued making music, fell in love, eventually marrying. ... more

Track Name: Children of the Divine
You’re so 20th century
like something that used to mean a lot to me
I may never change the world you see,
but I can lift us out of mediocrity

There’s nothing worth taking seriously
The best things they make the fun out of me

Children of the divine
Seeking out the sublime
We’ll believe it
We’ll believe it till the clocks wind down

Chase a dream that you will most defend
and when you see a wall you must kick it in
We can be the new pioneers
who risk the days ahead on the new frontier

But nothing’s worth taking your sanity
The best things they make you play so free

Children of the divine
Seeking out the sublime
We’ll believe it
We’ll believe it when till the clocks wind down
Track Name: (I Just Want) To Be Free
The deafening life of the city
You’re trying to drown it out
Numbing yourself to the weary
to suffocate the shouts

Of "I — I just want to be free"
Yeah, I, I just want to be

Are you really lonely
if all your thoughts are shared
listening to the moaning of the city
echo in despair?
