Active Child fans can let out a collective cheer because the California-based electronic artist and harp master (a.k.a. Pat Grossi) announced his next album, Mercy, will be released in June 2015. Active Child tells FADER: “The words ‘Somewhere between now and 1999’ encapsulate the emotion and meaning of this song to me. Those 16 years span the end of adolescence and the beginning of adulthood for me. It’s a song about growing up, a song about the fragility of love, and our instinctual, perpetual search for that someone. I can remember my little nieces and nephews laughing and playing in my studio the day i started work on what would become ‘1999.’ Their innocence and curiosity of everything inspired me that day. There’s a cycle to the song’s structure and lyrics, a repetition that is hypnotic I think, much like the cycle of growing up, its so easy to lose track of time, but always important I think to keep track of your own growth.”
