The Triad is again cranking out another fantastic band. If you have not heard of I, Anomaly yet, you will soon. Lost in the Waves marks I, Anomaly's second EP together and the culmination of a defined sound, that draws comparisons to bands like The National, Brand New, The Killers, and Modest Mouse Combined with an energetic live performance I, Anomaly has made a name for themselves at festivals like Phuzz Phest and DashPop The trio is made up of lead singer Cory Wood, guitarist Joshua Ling and drummer Mark Wingerter. 

Backup vocals and lead guitarist Joshua Ling said there was nothing more natural than playing music. “I’ve never thought about not playing music. It’s a way to deal with life. The songs I write are how I process certain things,” Ling said. 

There is something distinctive about this EP. The tracks, the vocals, the instruments are welded together in a way that allows anyone to relate to the gut wrenching lyrics some of these songs hold. Cory Wood, songwriter for the majority of this album and the band’s lead singer, speaks candidly about his experience making this EP. “These songs are personal and have a lot [of] anguish towards myself and the life experiences that lead to write the songs. So playing them live is a hard thing [for] me vocally. Having to go back to a time that made me angry or sad emotionally is heavy,” Wood said. 

Gearing up for each show and preparing to open himself again is part of Wood’s creative process.

“Clearing my mind before a show and getting to that place helps me come across true to the songs. Hoping that the listener will engage as much as I do, is my goal every show. Taking them to that place just as I have gone,” Wood said.   

A heartbreaking song on the new EP is “Beautiful”, written by Wood. The song is honest and raw but remains relatable. “It's also a song about personal growth and moving past what you once thought to be beautiful,” Wood said. “Social suicide and losing people you had as friends, because of lost connection or lost love. At the time I had seen this first hand with failed marriages, personal friendships, lost connections. Looking back to find something beautiful to hold on too, via a memory or passing thought. Seeing the good in people when the situation isn't ideal.”
