Looking forward benefits from the objective ability to reflect back. As we are already underway with a new year, looking forward, as reflections of the last growing distant behind us, analysis of that view provides insight into where we are, and how close and how far from where we want to be. Reflection and resolution are overly popular and overtly cliche around the beginning of a new year. Often becoming a trend of faux intention glorified by the energy of the moment, quickly lost with habits retiring to the monotony of periods prior. When viewed devoid of terrestrial and geological factors, a new year is merely the starting point of a natural cycle, to which our cultures and societies adhere, but is otherwise arbitrary in regard to linear progress. That said, there is great significance in the inspirations behind the concept, hover fickle and popular this particular representation may be. ...read more

The first journey outside of Los Angeles as artists is now complete. In only a short week of time our senses overflowed with rich new experiences and we were transformed by the immense fulfillment of communicating and connecting with new people through art. From the beautiful geography of the North West to the eclectic character of each venue and city, to the bonds between people and other artists, it was an exhilarating new endeavor. One that must we must do again soon.
The digital download of the new album, Identity is now live in our web store, http://socionic.spinshop.com as well as on Amazon and iTunes.

All merchandise is now heading to the warehouse and will start shipping at the end of the month, the week of Halloween.
It has been a long time coming, but the release of our album Identity is finally here. As with the development and maturation of many things worth toiling over, the tenets of a rich essence take time to distill. The preparation of these songs led us through explorations of layered composition, the nuances and complexities of production, and the depths of emotion that translated into the lyrics, sound and art contained within. From that journey came this album, and we are proud to present it to you.
In many ways it is much more than merely a of collection of songs, aural compositions that describe abstract forms of emotion and thought, but a description of the various aspects of expression and exploration that compose the artistic forces behind it. Identity isn’t just a new album; it’s an establishment of what this project is about. A foundation from which to build. A solidification of Identity.
