This would be the 8th album from the Folk duo. Originally from the Bay Area, Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz have been on an upward trend, educating and speaking their truth to power through their music.
In a recent press release, Eric Anders explains the underlying meaning and literary inspiration behind the mysterious title: “The title track is about how the answers we’ve had to life’s big questions often disguise/reveal our deepest uncertainties and fears. In his poem, “The Second Coming,” Yeats writes “The best lack all conviction, while the worst / Are full of passionate intensity.” The “answers” that the worst hold so tight to not only belie their fear and insecurity; they are also the foundation for their passionately intense violence against those who are otherwise.”
After listening to this body of work, I came to the conclusion that ‘Answers Belie’ is an evergreen project, a conscious one to reflect upon at certain times in life.
