about

There are bands that tie themselves to a genre and there are bands that don't. After listening to I, The Current's debut album "The Seeking" you'll know that this band falls in the latter category.

The band has solidified that statement after releasing a music video for their single "Supercluster". It portrays the heaviness of modern hardcore and post-hardcore outfits, as well as the ambient soundscapes that post-rock bands are known for.

Originally released through The Front Agency.

The Seeking:
"... exploring guitar riffs and instrumental sections octaves above what today’s metalcore listeners are used to." HM Magazine (3.5/5)

Track Name: The Weight
It follows me, like a shadow follows a man.
It's time for me to take responsibility.
It follows me, like a shadow follows a man.
It's time, it's time for me to take responsibility.

It's hard, but this is the weight of my choice.
Soon this will all just be a bad dream.
It's hard, but this is the weight of my choice.
The weight of my choice.
Track Name: Head Up
Learn from your mistakes and make up for the actions,
the actions that follow you day after day.
Then maybe you'll find yourself not living in the past.
Don't give up now. Keep your head up. This is not the end.

Life will not take a turn for the worst (For the worst).
Say it (Say it). Mean it (Mean it). Until you believe it.
Say it until you mean it.

Trust me when I say, we've all been through a rough patch.
But with the right state of mind and the right friends beside you.
YOU WILL MAKE IT. You're gonna make it. Just pull through.
Don't give up now. Keep your head up. This is not the end.

Life will not take a turn for the worst (For the worst).
Say it (Say it). Mean it (Mean it). Until you believe it.
Say it until you mean it.

Life will not take a turn for the worst,
as long as you believe in yourself.
Don't give up now. Keep your head up.
This is not the end.

Life will not take a turn for the worst (For the worst).
Say it (Say it). Mean it (Mean it). Until you believe it.
Say it until you mean it.

Learn from your mistakes and make up for the actions,
the actions that follow you day after day.
Track Name: Dreamer/Aspirations
Why should we bother to look up to persons, that only want to look down on us? I'm not sure I should care about their opinions, when the only thing they do is laugh about ours.

We are the ones that pursue our dreams. We'll stop at nothing. I know you're against this but the only thing you're doing, is denying me to be free.

Do me a favor and drop the protective act. I know my potential, I know what I can do. Let me show you I believe in my capabilities. Let me show you what I can become.

We are the ones that pursue our dreams. We'll stop at nothing. I know you're against this but the only thing you're doing, is denying me to be free.

I cannot stress this enough, I'm not the type that gives up easily. I know the dangers of jumping into the unknown. But I'm not scared, I'm prepared. I believe in myself. I believe in myself.

We are the ones that pursue our dreams. We'll stop at nothing. I know you're against this but the only thing you're doing, is denying me to be free. Just let me be free.
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
You're so certain of your own convictions. So narrow minded, you can't even see it.
An open mind is all I'm asking for, but you're used to being ignorant.
What happens when you don't really know what you stand for, what you believe in?
When you can't remember who you love and who's to trust?
Tunnel vision has taken over.

It's too naive to walk around with your eyes closed.
But you prefer to never question your surroundings.
Why won't you open your eyes for one damn time and look for the truth?

What happens when you don't really know what you stand for, what you believe in?
When you can't remember who you love and who's to trust?
Tunnel vision has taken over.

"Ignorance is bliss" has always been a flawed expression.
It's time to open your eyes.

What happens when you don't really know what you stand for, what you believe in?
When you can't remember who you love and who's to trust?
Tunnel vision.
Track Name: The Seeking
There's not much to be said, I chose to focus on what's positive.
These years of negativity have caused enough hurt for everyone.

Farewell, misanthropy. I am done with this life of hate.
There's not much left of me, so I'll start my life anew with a clean slate. And now it's time to start living.

There are so many people I wish I could just leave them all behind,
but facing my demons is the first step to overcome them.
To leave this in the past.

Farewell, misanthropy. I am done with this life of hate.
There's not much left of me, so I'll start my life anew with a clean slate. And now it's time to start living.

This is a search for happiness and I am close to finding my way.
This is a search for happiness. For happiness.
Track Name: The Ocean
"I need to get away, I need to clear my mind.
I'll see you again, but for now this is goodbye."

The ocean sways, it's taking me in.
A perpetual motion, clearing my mind.
Forget all aches, forget all misery.
The ocean sways, it's taking me in.

The ocean sways, it's taking me in.
A perpetual motion, clearing my mind.
Forget all aches, forget all misery.
The ocean sways, it's taking me in.

"I need to get away, I need to clear my mind.
I'll see you again, but for now this is goodbye."
Track Name: Walter Sherman
My life has been turned upside down and I've got no other choice but to adapt. But somehow I've been able to cope with this sudden change of environment, of my state of mind. My way of thinking has changed, it's time to put it to use. I'll find whatever you need, whatever you want.
I'm determined, I won't rest till I succeed. I'll find whatever you need, whatever you want. Opportunities will never fade away, because…
We're always searching.

The world around us, all the people among us. They constantly change, constantly evolve. We'll never run out of things we want, always wanting something new. Supply and demand, a vicious circle. We'll never stop looking.
We're always searching.

We're always searching: for something new, something exciting.
Something more than we could ever fathom. I'll find whatever you need.
'Cause my way of thinking has changed, it's time to put it to use.
I'll find whatever you need, whatever you want. I'm determined, I won't rest till I succeed. I'll find whatever you need, whatever you want.
Opportunities will never fade away.
Track Name: Anchors/Reminder
It's too damn easy to be negative all the time, why do I need to remind myself to smile?

All the things that we've been through, all that's happened and is still happening. They're the anchors that are blocking out all the good things that I know of. Yet I try to remember all the positive memories even though it's hard. I'm trying my best to put this aside, to get rid of the anchors and push forward.

It's too damn easy to be negative all the time, why do I need to remind myself to smile? It's so easy to give up on this, to give up hope. I'm writing this down to remind myself to stay positive at heart.

All this negativity is like an anchor weighing me down, pulling me under. I'm drowning because of you, cause you keep adding weight to a load that is already too heavy. I'm trying to comprehend how people manage to move on after their life has been turned upside down. I promised myself to move forward and I'm not planning on letting myself down. I'm getting rid of my anchors.

It's too damn easy to be negative all the time, why do I need to remind myself to smile? It's so easy to give up on this, to give up hope. I'm writing this down to remind myself to stay positive at heart.

I'm getting rid of my anchors.
Track Name: Come Down
You chose to go down this path, you made that mistake all by yourself.

It was not my intention to bring you down, but you left me with no choice.
You ruined it for yourself.

You chose to go down this path, you made that mistake all by yourself.
Why can't you see how selfish and close-minded you are? Instead of blaming someone else,
come down from your throne.

You ruined it for yourself.
(Come down from your throne)

I didn't ask for this. I didn't ask for this.

Going down this path, you made that mistake all by yourself.
Why can't you see how selfish and close-minded you really are? Instead of blaming someone else,
come down from your throne.
Track Name: The Words
I've been locked away for years with no chance of getting out (of getting out)
I still don't know what made me lose my mind. (lose my mind)
The place where I'm supposed to feel safe now feels like it’s a prison
and anywhere outside feels like home. Anywhere outside feels like.
I pour out my heart to you, but you don't care at all.
My words seem to fade away, the second they leave my mouth.
I told you several times in a row.
I don't want to be here. (I don't want to be here).
But you keep pulling me in.
I need to get away, I need to clear my mind.
I pour out my heart to you, but you don't care at all.
My words seem to fade away, the second they leave my mouth.
I want to get out. Get me out of here.
Get me out of here
I need to get away, I need to clear my mind.
Track Name: Supercluster
Can we find some common ground?
Or are you just going to leave again?
Because all this screaming and shouting,
it’s just pointless.
Can we find some fucking common ground?
Or go back to your black box under the sun.
Where you can melt down and nobody will ever see it?
(Nobody will ever see it)

We both are flawed but you can’t see yours.
Still stuck in your own perfection.
We’re both flawed but why can I only see it?
You scream and shout but I can’t make up the words.

I’ve lived years and years without you
and I’m damn sure I can do it again.
I’ve done my best to lock out the thought of you,
but out of nowhere you come crawling back in.

(You scream and shout but I can’t make up the words.
You scream and shout but I can’t make up the words.)

You don’t want to find common ground.
All you want to say is that it’s all my fault.
So this door goes shut in front of your face
I’ve learned to man up and forget about you for good.
Track Name: Morena
I was trying to fill a void I created myself, back when I fell in love with every pretty face.
“Am I missing out on something beautiful? Am I afraid I’ll become loveless?”

Somewhere along the way I discovered how to stop feeling sorry for myself.

I guess this is my own way of growing up, of getting rid of this void I made
when I was an angsty fucking teen. And I know there’s nothing that can hold me back,
if I want to find love I’ll never be loveless.
