Acharya is no stranger to Artist Spotlight here on the blog. Earlier this year I shared about their single “Tilt” if you haven’t read or listen to that song, you and check it out here. Today, they are back on the blog as the Artist Spotlight with their EP Tilt.
“Tilt” is a jammin’ song! I was excited to hear what good sound would come through the speakers as I listen to the 5 track EP. Charmingly CJ couldn’t help but hum along to “Spearhead” and “Stand” as we listen to them. Acharya’s vibe is mellow and you can hear it in the songs. I listen to “Vigilance” a few times as I was working. This is an album that you can listen to, hum along to, but still get that motivation to keep moving or get work done. But you could also listen to kick back and relax.
My favorite song from the Tilt EP is “Stand”. This song is beautiful – beautiful vocals. This song takes you to another world. You can listen to “Stand” below. “Continuum” is the perfect song for the end of the EP. The song is mellow and if you don’t already have your favorite beverage in your hand as you listen to this album, you will once you start listening to “Continuum”.

Check out the audio video for “Stand”.
Josh and Daniel met through Josh’s brother/Daniels friend Melvin. The three of them took a drive to Berkley from Sacramento to see Lorde on the Pure Heroine tour.
Tilt EP has been considered Avant-pop, Dream pop, Alternative. It has been compared to Jimmy Eat World, Death Cab for Cutie, Alt-J, Tears for Fears and Morrissey. Each track on the EP was written with a different process intentionally, some starting with guitar some with drums some with phone recordings from the beach in organ some from conceptual ideas in Ableton Live. The EP was thoroughly demoed then recorded at Little Russia Recordings over the span of two weeks in February of 2018. Working with Dryw Owens was an inspiring pleasure for Josh and Daniel. Dryw shaped the sound masterfully and well as adding direction for additional guitar parts and lending his vocal harmonies to “Continuum”.
The tracks on Tilt are in the same order as they were written and tell a rather meta-story of the process of writing the EP as well as self-imposed positive guidelines for how to organize and react to existence. Josh has vast experience obsessing on the negative and needed to set up pillars of positivity to perceive life through, and that is what this EP is.
