About 'Phosphorus' (Single, 2020)
"Phosphorus" has two drastically different sections. The verses are driven & energetic while the choruses strip down around a James Bond-esque vocal melody.
Lyrically, it explores internet use, & more broadly, heightened connectivity. The dynamic of needing a certain level of connectivity to progress, with the potential toxicity of overuse, is something most can relate to. In small quantities phosphorus is essential for plant growth. But at higher levels, it becomes a toxin to them.

About 'Asymmetric' (Album, 2019)
Fusing elements of pop, electronic, alt-rock, 'Asymmetric' is an on-going attempt at finding symmetry between what is felt & what is expressed; a continuous battle that seems to be fought universally as a part of the individual human experience. The title ‘Asymmetric’ as it functions in the context of the album, is the condition of struggling to externalize the internal, often resulting in toxic compensations such as disguise, manipulation, & abandonment of truth.
Written, recorded, & produced by Louis Imperiale.
Recording & production took place in Louis' basement.
Mixed & mastered by Sam Ramirez
