Bodhi’s Playlist

Bodhi, the one-man project from The Room Colored Charlatan’s Justin Seymour, recently released its debut EP Ineffable. We caught up with him to find out about where he draws his influences from.

A song that influenced him
Animals As Leaders – Behaving Badly
Like many, the first time I heard Animals as Leaders’ debut album in 2009 I knew that the genre of progressive metal had been changed forever and I aspired to be a part of that change after listening to this song.

A song he wishes he could have written
Guthrie Govan – Wonderful Slippery Thing
Guthrie Govan knows how to hit every right note and this song is pure jazzy groove, plus if I had the skills to write this song my guitar playing would be next level!

His favourite Bodhi song
Ineffable
Ineffable is the culminating song of the album and the title track, I wrote this song after going through some difficult personal issues that created emotions that I couldn’t express any other way that through music. That’s why the song and album is titled Ineffable.

A song he’s been listening to a lot recently
Stories – Alone in the Fallout
Stories has been a favorite of mine since 2013 and with their new release this song was a standout track for me. I have been listening to it while I go on late night walks alot.

His all time favourite song
Hans Zimmer – Time
Time from the Inception soundtrack as many know is a truly epic track and has taken on icon status, however there is a reason this song is in its simplest form just 4 chords on the piano but escalates into one of the most epic and beautiful songs in modern times.
