    Sail For Sol

    The Girl Who Knows Where ...

    "If time stops at the speed of light, and if you could become light itself,
    You would not experience the passage of time."

    The "spirit voice" speaking through and with the android girl, explains this to the boy to calm his fears as she transforms his dying body into a machine.
    She tells him, becoming mechanical is just one transformation in a long line of possibilities.
    Andria believes they may eventually become beings of light and experience existence as one eternal day.

    Icons of Andria is a recording project, a collaboration between Rodney Sellars of The Year Zero and Ken Negrete & Fabiola Sanchez of Familiar Trees on a Sci-fi concept album. Original concept & artwork by Rodney Sellars. Guitar & Lyrics by Rodney Sellars. Produced, Recorded & Mixed by Ken Negrete. Midi/Synthesizers/Piano by Ken Negrete. Vocals by Fabiola Sanchez & Rodney Sellars. Bass by Joel O'Neill.

    We have created a page for Icons of Andria:

    We hope you LIKE what you see & hear now & in the future as we continue to collaborate on this album. We will be publishing one song at a time to SoundCloud upon completion.

    "I loved "the universal way". After listening to more, I feel the music with eyes closed and penetrating my mind with a soft caress of my over responsive sinapsis ... Sorry, but your music cannot be expressed any other way ... I feel my dopamine slowly giving me a moment to relax rather than its relentless power to over replicate its consistent over production... this probably doesnt make a word of sense but music like yours can be felt from the inside out and my neuro difficulties find a place in my mind to relax like i haven't in such a long time... i love your music! My neurologic fall from grace is best comforted by how relaxed you and your wife make me feel from your talents." -Mike HC Wilson, Musician

    "This project is so cool and brilliant and unexpected! I love the music and the artwork (the art is intense...). When I saw the image first (before I read the story), I thought it looked like it was new age meets steam punk ... I love to see something that is a brand new hybrid -- Once I read the story it made sense and for me now the image feels like---sci fi meets new age meets steam punk : ) the music is of course impeccable and oh so beautiful.... I look forward to the development and really am inspired..." -Joella March, Artist

    "Have long been a fan of gorgeous Familiar Trees and when vocalist Fabiola Sanchez sent me an invitation to listen to their new project, I pulled my ears for me. Music, art and ideas in a relationship I am attracted to. Icons Of Andria is a collaboration between Rodney Sellars of The Year Zero and Ken Negrete and Fabiola Sanchez of Familiar Trees . The music is harmonious and beautiful in a moderate pace... Mazzy Star , Slow Dive and Bat For Lashes are acts that pop up in my mind and I just want more. Icons Of Andria is working on a concept album that will be published on the web song to song, and today's track The Universal Way was the first of many more I hope." - Fredrik Hoffman, HOFFAS MUSIK BLOGG


    The Universal Way
    (lyrics by Rodney Sellars)

    This is an ancient energy
    Time is on a holiday
    I can see forever
    History is meaningless
    To the light that shines on us
    It's making me feel better
    Oh, you should stay
    We're gonna learn to ride that Universal Way
    Now, this is the end of everything, ah ah
    What a beautiful day
    I can see forever
    This is an eternal state, ah ah
    Everywhere and in every way
    It's making me feel better
    Oh, you should stay
    We're gonna learn to ride that old familiar way
    Oh, you should stay
    All along there's only been one endless day

    INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF 'THE UNIVERSAL WAY' HAS BEEN UPLOADED FOR STREAMING PURPOSES ONLY. (Accessible only to SoundCloud followers and/or friends with Secret Link. You can request Secret Link here: )
