Earthists. released their debut record, "Dreamscape," in March and has gained a lot of attention for their technical abilities, as well as meaningful lyrics. The band is heavily influenced by progressive metal bands, some of which elements can be showcased in "Footprints." The standout characteristics of technical guitar work in the verses mesh perfectly with catchy lead guitars, all while implementing Guitarist Yuto Hirabayashi's unique chord progressions.
"Footprints" was originally intended to be an instrumental track. However, when Hirabayashi joined the band, he perfected the track with additional guitar riffs. The end result also included lyrics that focus on the idea that, "We're always meeting and parting in our lives, but in order to move on, we need to look past our footprints behind us."
