Oregon Indie Rock Band Typhoon Delivers Cinematic New Album 'Offerings'

Coming off a four-year hiatus, Typhoon undoubtedly had huge expectations to fulfill with their new album. The Portland-based band presents their long-awaited fourth LP today (Jan. 12), Offerings.

This 14-track project is divided into four parts, "Floodplains", "Flood", "Reckoning", and "Afterparty," which work together to tell the chillingly raw story of a man who slowly realizes he’s losing his memory, and then becomes engulfed by the devastation of his situation. Offerings paints a cinematic experience through (mostly) strings, eerie instrumentation and emotional narration by lead singer/songwriter, Kyle Morton.

The 11-member band's last release was White Lighter back in 2013, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. Although Offerings'  theme is much darker than Typhoon's usual work, it is laced with hope, as Morton sings on "Unusual": "In this brave new world/ It's gonna take some time getting used to."
