Pulse is a young, new, and fresh band out of the Boston area. Taking influence from artists like U2, Muse, Coldplay, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana, the band forges a unique and identifiable, yet still mainstream sound. The band is an exceptional live act, and is moving towards a bright future.

Biography

Pulse was born in the early spring of 2010 from the solo projects of William Keough. Paul, William's older brother, was already dropping sweet bass tones to his solo music, but without a drummer the two were just simply empty. When William followed in his brother's footsteps and attended Stonehill College in Easton he befriended a young Yankee fan named Danny Padilla. Danny had brought his little drummer boy kit to school and William immediately noticed. Living in the same hallway by chance, the two felt that working together on music was simply fate. The three began working on tunes in the Keough brother's Hingham home. The idea of a singular figure in the band didn't stick with any of the members in this three piece. So after many seconds of deliberation the band chose the name "Pulse" and a new era began. The band released their first EP, the self titled Pulse - EP on March 2, 2010 to iTunes and AmazonMP3. This collection of demos and rough drafts only showed a small piece of the bands talent. After spending more time rehearsing and performing the band entered an online battle of the bands called “Wicked Local Web Jams.” The band won this contest with their demo of ‘Splintered Hearts.’ The prize was recording time and a winner’s gig. So with this recording time the band decided to record a new EP, with some classics and some never-before-heard tunes. They recorded the tracks Cascade, Wake Your Dreams, and Splintered Hearts and put them with a live track and two demos to create the new EP Day Turns to Night. This EP was released physically and digitally on November 16, 2010. It has been a great hit thus far. Promoting it at all of their lives shows, the band has seen substantial interest and acclaim. The band plays live frequently and has been praised for its ability to sound as good or better live than in the studio. They have recently developed a relationship with one of boston’s premier concert promotion companies, ‘Hear Now Live.’ Having played in numerous events at venues ranging from Stonehill College to the Palladium, to the Guru Room and Church of Boston, the band is looking to take the next step towards a bright future.

Lyrics

Wake Your Dreams

Written By: William Keough

I’ve never found what I’m looking for.
But I thought I’d found the love.
And I've never found what I'm searching for,
Searching for above
With the conviction of a preacher,
A black heart’s my only feature.
But not all of me will die,
With the blue that’s left my eye.

I don’t know if love is true, after all this hearts been through
I’ll wash the pain with the dirty rain, keep on walking ‘till I’m free of shame

I’ve never found what I’m looking for.
But I thought I’d found the grace.
And I've never found what I'm searching for,
I'm searching for a taste.
The sweet taste of the meeker,
Has gotta be the teacher,
That not all of me will die,
With the blue that’s left my eye.

And as the day turns to night
My hearts ceases to fight
I’ll wake, and I’ll wade
Through the darkness I’ve made

I don’t know if love is true, after all this hearts been through
I’ll wash the pain with the dirty rain, won’t stop walking ‘till I’m free of shame

And as the day turns to night
My hearts ceases to fight
I’ll wake, and I’ll wade
Through the darkness I’ve made
Non omnis moriar
Take my soul, take its scars
Blaze your trail, track your call
Wake your dreams
Wake your dreams
Wake your dreams, wake them all
Oh, Oh, Come on and wake 'em all

Splintered Hearts

Written By: William Keough

I just want you to know, even thought we're apart. I just want you to feel the pulse of my heart. And you aren't he only lonely heart, only you stop tearing me apart. you, yeah you. I don't want you to know the pain that I feel, I just want you to have a love so surreal. You aren't the only lonely heart, only you can mend my splintered heart. You, yeah you. You are the world to me, only you can set me free. And you are the world to me, only you, can set me free. You aren't the only lonely soul, only you can make my heart console. You aren't the only lonely heart, only you can mend my splintered, my splintered heart.
