WORLD5: “Global Experience”

WORLD5 coalesced around the idea that music can transcend distance. The five members had all played together in various bands in the U.S. and Europe. But that was then. Today, they live on three difference continents spanning 19 time zones from the U.S. to Australia.

Yet distance was no barrier to their creativity and shared sense of musical purpose. Thanks to the power of home digital recording, each member recorded his part in the comfort of his own home.

Sure, it eliminated the intimacy of playing in the same room. But it also freed them from the traditional stresses of recording. No scary red recording lights to rattle their nerves. No worrying about paying for recording studio time. No plates of unappetizing cold cuts moldering in the control room.

That didn’t mean they didn’t talk.There were weekly chats on Skype and a steady flow of email to hone the vision of each song. And the occasional midnight phone call to hammer home an important point.

Then the final tracks were shipped to Randy Miller the wunderkind producer in Houston, Texas, where he tweaked and assembled them into the songs on the album ‘Global Experience’. The next step? Hit the same stage at the same time in the same city and play the songs together!

We recently visited the World5 website for a peek and listened to snippets of their new album to be officially released on May 1st – ‘Global Experience’.

World5 play a sophisticated brand of Adult Orientated Pop/Rock, that is both nostalgic and fresh sounding.

Their musical arrangements embrace the same lusciously controlled-power concept, that made supergroup Toto a household name, with some traces of the creative Yes sound.

Flamboyant rhythms, layers of shimmering strings, acoustic pianos and stabbing horns, all driven by exquisite electric guitar hooks and beds of catchy vocal harmonies.

World5 are perhaps a little less dogmatic, rigid and maniacal than Toto or Yes in their compositions. The band and the production team have tended to keep their sound tight and powerful, but always light, effervescent and immediate. The music is never heavy on the ear.

The album contains many highlights, and standout tracks include the single release ‘You and I’, which displays a driving jingle jangle beat and some ear-catching horn arrangements. ‘All My Heart’ with it’s reverberating chorus harmonies, or ‘So Sincere’ with it’s powerful lead vocal melody and guitar hooks. The pure pop of ‘Bring Your Heart Home’, or even the funky dance rhythms of ‘Jump And Shout’. Not less impressive than the others, is the beautiful ballad, ‘A Day For Lovers’ as well as ‘Living(Give Me A Reason)’.

World5 have packed ‘Global Experience’ with tons musical goodies. The arrangements, though never heavy on the ear, are always rich and luscious, while the rhythms, melodies and hooks have a positive and uplifting effect on the listener, in true world-music style.

Like the music they play, the World5 website is choc-a-bloc with info, music, picture galleries, press news and video.

The webpages are easy to surf with all band information and contact pages at hand.

They also have a shopping page where you can find links to purchase World5 music, as well as links to share info and follow the band on all major social networks. They even have a Japanese translation of their homepage.

On the World5 website you won’t find fancy graphics, flash intros or confusing color schemes.

The layout is straight and simple. Top of the page tabs, a dark background and plain white fonts.

They have put the emphasis of color, fantasy and sound, exactly where it belongs, in the music they produce.

And that is precisely what we have appreciated most about World5.

Very little hype and loads of good music.

On the album…and on their official website.

A truly ‘Global Experience’!
