Abyss of Lullabies [Music Video] Premiere  

Abyss of Lullabies is Chapter 7 off of the album "Wake Up." However, the troublesome song has caused quite a quarrel to make itself be known. From the beginning of it's inception I recall having to practically beg Ernesto to write it with me, let alone feature it on the album. Lo and behold, after countless battles, Abyss of Lullabies actually turned out to be one of Ernesto's favorite songs off of the album. So naturally, we put it on the album!...or did we? Or so we thought. After printing 1,000 CD's I was looking at the back track list only to find that #6 jumped to #8. Where was #7?! Abyss of Lullabies, was missing from the album artwork. After a few angry emails we realized we were going to have to make the best of the situation - 1,000 rare CD's with Abyss of Lullabies as the ghost track- will have to suffice. 

Abyss of Lullabies is a hell of conversation to explain only in words and so that is why the visuals are also such an integral part of our art and message. The lyrics and visuals were both inspired by personal experiences of a seemingly innocent and beautiful dream about being a baby again and sleeping peacefully in a baby crib, only that isn't the case in this nightmare. The dream takes a sadistic turn when I refuse to let a demon seduce me. That experience was one of the many that inspired me to write this album. Though I do not underestimate the power of the mind, Abyss of Lullabies begs to suggest we've been fighting demons since birth. There are too many things I've observed and experienced that have little to no scientific explanations. The reasoning for my persistence and sense of urgency will hopefully be declared in our works. 
Their are "wolves" dressed in suits or rags- their are enslaved souls dressed in suits or rags.

Until We Get It Right [Music Video]  

Check out our music video for our new single Until We Get It Right  off of our debut album Wake Up set to release January 2017!

More about our videos:

We believe that visuals are just as an integral part of our art as our music and message. Each song is like a chapter in a book or tv series and so we've decided to create a music video for each song off of Wake Up that will collectively tell a unified story. The story however will be told backwards starting with Until We Get It Right (chapter 9).We knew our idea would cost a fortune and being an independent duo we didn't have a major label's budget. However, we were determined to tell our story so we bought a camera initially set out to produce and film these videos on our own. We quickly realized the difficulties we would face trying to create this series with only 2 people being the talent and the crew. Many nights, I stayed up late brainstorming how we would make this into a reality. I needed an actor?...but it couldn't just be any actor. I needed a team?..but it couldn't just be any team. It had to be someone who believed in our music and vision. Someone who could really get into my brain and project the visual outward. Fate brought Max Davallo to our aid who encompassed all of those things and then-some. 

Wake Up is a conceptual album that follows the story of an odd girl who unmindfully opens a door to an unknown realm where she retrieves a dark secret that was intended to be lost at birth. She must bravely travel back through the subconscious parallel to face the shadow person that haunts her there, before it destroys her and the innocent lives plagued by the dark secret.

Welcome to our new site! 

Hello my fellow Honest Soldiers,

Welcome to our new website! 

As some of you may already know, we formally operated under the name One Ion but decided to change our name after discovering a company has the name One Ion trademarked. 

Modern Mimes came from a fond childhood memory of being a mime for Halloween instead of the millionth pink Power Ranger. We like to think the power of the Mime still exists, even though we are anything but mute in our music. The act of conveying a feeling and experience that cannot necessarily be described in words pretty much sums us up perfectly (with the exception that I am saying everything yet saying nothing)...wait, whaaaaa?..........

Love & Light,
