At Wrightway Studios in Baltimore, Deaf Scene tracked all of their instruments for their second full-length album over a span of just four days, intent on capturing the raw energy and inspiration they had felt during the writing process in the months prior. These recording sessions culminated in Chimera, a collection of progressive and psychedelic instrumental songs that stray away from over-indulgence and virtuosity in favor of melody, harmony, and ambience. In biology, a Chimera is defined as an organism containing a mixture of genetically different tissues. Deaf Scene's Chimera album showcases the individual contributions of each of Deaf Scene's three members on different songs; yet as a whole the album feels cohesive and natural. The band aims to keep having fun with music and to keep writing songs in their own way.
