Take synth-pop keys and throw them into a cold alt-rock pyrex bowl. Mix briskly with an ex-opera singer turned rock vocalist influenced by Paramore with a metal guitarist whose inspirations include Nightwish and Birthday Massacre. Set a timer and enjoy by listening for four minutes. That’s Unfathom.

Biography

Unfathom is a Dallas alt-rock band that weaves synth-pop keyboards and emotionally-rich vocals into an alt-rock landscape.

The band released its first EP earlier this year and is currently working on its first full album for release in early 2011. To promote this album, the band is preparing to put on a series of digital concerts broadcast in real-time to fans through the website ustream.com.

Originally starting out in Tokyo, Japan, vocalist Brandon McInnis started writing music in Japanese while studying abroad. After returning to the US, he began collaboration with guitarist Derek Troxtell and pianist Lisa Chou to form a synth-pop band, going on to tour at Japanese conventions in Sacramento, Houston, Omaha and even in Japan as a featured artist at the Kansai Music Conference in Osaka.

Upon returning to the United States a second time, the band went through a genre shift to American alternative-rock, acquiring bassist Nick Troxtell and drummer Stephanie Thornton. They emerged to play their first gig opening the largest rock music festival in North Texas, EdgeFest, earlier this year. After sharing the stage with international French band Phoenix, Metric, Flyleaf, Three Days Grace and 30 Seconds to Mars, they started booking local venues in North Texas. They entered 2010 with the goal of establishing themselves as a Dallas local band and succeeded, playing regularly at venues such as the Curtain Club, Prophet Bar and Trees.

In the coming year, Unfathom plans on exploring new ways to connect with their fans more directly, through acoustic performances and internet concerts. Fans have described their new single, Camaro, as “edgy,” “aggressive in its delivery,” and “connects to its listeners on a very real level by offering an outlet of musical escapism from the world.”

Sean Young of Wherehouse Entertainment is quoted as saying “People don't buy plastic and paper, they buy emotion.” Unfathom has that emotion.

“How do you do when my voice isn’t there,
and off in the corner, red flags of despair
taunt you and tease the strength right from your hands?”
-Unfathom, Camaro

Lyrics

Camaro

Written By: Brandon McInnis

The first thing that happens: your head starts to throb
with all of the fears that you'll make someone sob
'cause their disappointment would mean it's the end of you.

And their on the balcony now starts to feel
like you're on the edge of the first thing that's real
in your life 'cause nothing has felt like you feel now.

Look down below, I'm waiting for you.
The stars that you're watching, I'm looking at too.
Come down here and let me show you how it's done.

Leave all your cares in the back of my Camaro
and drive with me to a place no one knows, to a place no one goes.
Put it all on hold. You can be back there tomorrow.
Everything's going to be all right. Everything's going to be all right tonight.

You're starting to change now, you're starting to grow
in ways that you can't see, in ways you don't know.
My mind's consumed with every thought of you.

How do you do when my voice isn't there,
and off in the corner red flags of despair,
taunt you and tease the strength right from your hands.

Look down below, I'm waiting for you.
The stars that you're watching, I'm looking at too.
Come down here and let me show you how it's done.

Leave all your cares in the back of my Camaro
and drive with me to a place no one knows, to a place no one goes.
Put it all on hold. You can be back there tomorrow.
Everything's going to be all right. Everything's going to be all right tonight.

Speed away, speed away from your losses.
Speed away, speed away from your losses.

Leave all your cares in the back of my Camaro
and drive with me to a place no one knows, to a place no one goes.
Put it all on hold. You can be back there tomorrow.
Everything's going to be all right. Everything's going to be all right.

Leave all your cares in the back of my Camaro
and drive with me to a place no one knows, to a place no one goes.
Put it all on hold. You can be back there tomorrow.
Everything's going to be all right. Everything's going to be all right tonight.
