Will, Alec, and Kevin of Overthoughts (based in Maryland), join the Alchemicast with Andy Reed from their various remote locations to discuss their latest release on March 19 , “Trust Me”, and to talk about how members of the band (all professional musicians) had to come up with interesting ways to sustain income generating opportunities over the last year. They talk about their lives as the band Stacked Like Pancakes and their need to create a whole new project around the songs presented by Overthoughts. The band talks about the importance of maintaining a connection with fans and other artists within the DMV, and how the band has been collaborating to bring new music to life during strange times.

When Jamie Darken first began writing the songs that would appear on his debut solo EP, Burial, he imagined he was crafting demos for Cherry Ames, a local Washington DC area indie-rock band that Darken performs as vocalist, guitarist, and bassist. With Cherry Ames on hiatus amidst the global shutdown and performing in venues unavailable as an option, Darken’s drive to make progress with the ideas on his own eventually brought the tracks to the place where it simply felt right to release as his own project. The result is five songs written, produced, and performed by Darken, with the exception of leading single “This Could Be Your Home” co-written with fellow DC area musician Christopher Mathews-Larsen.
