With the city's tech boom of the past half decade, San Francisco's swinging '60s psychedelic rock scene, and recently, indie rock scene are steadily becoming things of the past. In the case of psych rock, that movement may be in history's rearview mirror, but the Love Dimension are making isn't doesn't fade away. The collective's mission statement is to "create sonic architecture for the benefit of all sentient beings across the multi-verse.” The Love Dimension reflects the personal journey of founder Jimmy L. Dias, who was on the path to becoming a shamanic healer before his experiences of healing were what brought him back to making music. He chose wisely, which you can hear on the band's trippy new single “When Soul Love Begins.” Sounding more 1966 than 2016, the song is a terrific reminder how vibrant the San Francisco sound once was with its kaleidoscopic aura.
"Well its about duality and unconditional love. For there to be dark there must also be light," the band says of the tune. When you swing the pendulum one way, it eventually gathers up energy so it can come back to the other side and balance things out. When we expand beyond that duality and separation into the oneness, we come to the realization that there is only unconditional love. From that space we see how it is all included...every experience, every being, every life, etc.
"The song is about no matter what is happening in your life and how challenging it may feel in the moment, that things will turn out ok when you make that inner shift in the present and focus on what is most important. The mystery, the energy, the stream that runs through us and all things doesn't judge. It doesn't say you are wrong or right or good or bad. It just is.
"We can be that too when we choose to attune ourselves to that frequency. We can flow with it or we can fight it and try to swim up stream so our ego and mind feels like it accomplished something. It is all in our choices and what we decide to bring our awareness and attention to."
The Love Dimension's new EP Freakquency Space Mind Continuum will be released June 10th.
