Chicago’s Panoramic & True aren’t the first musicians to pen a song about manic depression (See: Jimi Hendrix, Blink-182) but the 8-piece outfit transform mood swings into chord progressions with an even-keeled melody and a balanced outlook on “A Week of Good Health,” the first single from their forthcoming Wonderlust. “The title [of the song] suggests a moment of clarity, where friction between inside your head and outside is miraculously gone for a moment,” songwriter John Lennox told Hive. “When you’re too inside yourself, you turn friends and jobs away from you. The end of the song is about reconciling this interior self in public and how difficult this can be for some people.” In other words, lets all just learn to lighten up.
Wonderlust arrives July 24 on Raymond Roussel Records.Panoramic & True - A Week of Good Health
