Millennium Resorts Release New Album

Scott Raulie and Jonathan Richerson's new album 'In The Key Of David' muddles the boundaries between different genres.

 

Musical duo Millennium Resorts is comprised of Austin-based artists Scott Raulie and Jonathan Richerson. Together their music is something that blurs the lines of many different genres.


In January they released their latest album titled “In the Key of David.”

 

Their first single off the album, “Happiness” was already introduced; and to great acclaim nonetheless. What others perceive of their music, though, is of no concern to the artists.


They want listeners to form their own opinions, and take from it what they want.

 

 

 

 

We like it that people are interpreting different things, but what we really love is that a lot of the feedback suggests that people are distracted more by the music than the lyrics. I’m no poet, and more focused on the tune and the lyrics fitting into the melody. When writing a song, I believe the most important part is the melody,” says Raulie. 

 

There’s a layer of intrigue and mystique behind their music, especially this album. This was done with purpose. “We like to build intrigue and tension and maybe the listener will get some answers after listening to the full album. Or maybe it will inspire repeated listens to unlock the mystery, “ the musicians say.

 

 

 


They also insist that the album is meant to be listened to in full so as to really experience it in its entirety and capture its full essence.
“One of the most important aspects of “In The Key of David” is that it is meant to be listened to from front to back.

The album was composed and executed as an album. It was never just a song here and there, it was completely outlined before the production started,” they note. They insist that there is a beginning, a middle and an end to the album.

 

 

How Raulie and Richerson came together initially is something the artists laugh about today, as they reference the U2 Tribute Band they were members of when they met. Joking aside, they say they realized right away that they had a great amount in common in terms of ambition and musical tastes.

 


It took them three years to complete the album. The next single off of it that they’ll release soon is titled “The Big Show.” Inspired by many different artists of many different genres, it’s what makes their own music so eclectic.

 



Citing Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins as just a few bands they look up to, Richerson says he also leaned on classical music for inspiration while writing the album.

 

 

The result is a solid album–one that surely brings a bit of “Happiness” to listeners.
