Back to Yours is committed to making rock music accessible for all music fans, and their newest album achieves this through their alt rock sound. Being students at Georgetown University together, Aiden Jones (bass), Bryce Kassalow (vocals, guitar), Daniel Luttway (vocals, keys), Jiaan Mansuri (drums), and Tommy Levin (guitar), formed the band in Spring 2018. They started by playing Beatles covers in backyards, but have since been playing their original music in venues up and down the East coast. The band’s debut album “Where Are We Going”

“It’s Dangerous at Home” is an easy-to-listen-to rock album that still manages to explore themes of early adulthood, like isolation, identity, and intimate relationships. Featuring 13 songs, Back to Yours illustrates their growth and maturity throughout the album.

The album opens with “I Must Be Confused,” which features cool harmonies and an easy-going melody. Another standout from the album is “Cotton Candy Mustard Cake;” the last single for the album, this song is an acoustic love song and perfect for any summertime sunset. “Ira in the Well”, a personal favorite, is more of a rock-ballad that discusses the complexity of isolation when trying to develop identity. The album as a whole feels cohesive and mature, as well as a perfect beginning for anyone interested in getting into rock music.

“It’s Dangerous at Home” is available today on major streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
