Soul Extract goes full ‘Supernova’ with an electrifying blend of cinematic Rock in collaboration with songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Paul Trust.
Fuelled by orchestral strings blending with chugging guitars, impassioned vocals, powerful rhythms, ethereal melodies, and the electrifying combination of bass, drums, electric guitar, and synthesizers, ‘Supernova’ explodes onto the scene as a rich blend of alternative rock and heavy electronics.
Soul Extract’s ability to craft elaborate, genre-defying pieces collides with Trust’s abilities to capture an emotive resonance through sonic story telling. The anthem ebbs and flows, building tension across its running time with a unique storyline that will resonate across space and time.
“From the moment I heard Paul’s idea for this song,” explained Soul Extract. “I knew ‘Supernova‘ would fit into the Soul Extract world perfectly. We each brought our own inspirations and it all came together to form a really cool track about a human being called by an entity, born of a supernova, away from a dying planet to join in creating new worlds together.”
Paul Trust, a graduate of the University of Miami School of Music engineering, is a highly versatile, RIAA Platinum-certified songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and label owner who is notably known for discovering, co-writing with, and developing country superstar Morgan Wallen. He is also known for his work with MNQN, Starset, Downplay, Say Anything, Diecast, Endo, Jesse Strange, Atom Smash, and Sunday Driver.
Josh Mullis, the architect behind Soul Extract’s elaborate compositions, brings a deconstructive mindset to his craft, tearing apart genres and fusing their most compelling elements back together to build calculated and highly detailed tracks.
Soul Extract taps into a wealth of human emotions and experiences, giving song an invigorating level of creative clarity, and a willingness to smash through genre barriers. These ideas began to take shape in 2013, and after years spent synthesising the sounds of metal, electronic, and orchestral music, the artist unleashed fiery debut album, Circadian Algorithm, laying the foundation for a developing.
Mullis’ passion for music began at a young age, and he has traditionally pulled from deeply personal events for his creative stimulus. Finding escape from family struggles by picking up a guitar as a teenager, Mullis discovered those early creative efforts were able to carry him through unpredictable times. As an adult, a motivating force for his music rests within humanitarian endeavours, as Mullis donates proceeds from Soul Extract to New Day Foster Home, a charity that supported the health of his adopted daughter at an early age. As the project name suggests, Soul Extract is intended as Josh Mullis’ unaltered expression of himself.
