IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?

OTHERS: Our point of views. Understanding all that is written from the metaphysical, spiritual, religious and the philosophically basic and how those aspects of reality influence and lead us all through our everyday experiences and how to utilize them. You’ll get a variety of sounds and topics in our music because we experience a variety of emotions like every other human being.
