Equilibrium, the fourth album in The Nor'easters' discography, features compelling soloists, powerful backing vocals, and deep, danceable grooves. Recorded and produced by The Vocal Company, Equilibrium includes the group's championship set from the 2013 ICCA ("Drumming Song", "Wrong Side of a Love Song", "Diamonds/Born to Die", "Don't You Worry Child"). All songs were arranged by the award-winning Shams Ahmed, who drew inspiration from pioneering and eclectic artists including Florence Welch, Janelle Monáe, and Eric Whitacre. Equilibrium balances the originality of such artists with the accessibility of modern pop to create a sound that is unmistakably The Nor'easters'. "Listening, we recognize moments when innocence gives way to experience: the realization that discovery involves confusion and distress as well as joy[...] Other moments offer opportunities for reflection and the wisdom that comes from accepting love and loss. [...]We feel an unresolved tension: living a life, the album seems to say, means seeking a balance between hope for everything and the possibility of nothing." - Dr. Benjamin Eldon Stevens.
