Hailing from Providence, RI, beach-ready rockers ATLANTIC THRILLS have just released their first 7″ on Almost Ready Records in Brooklyn, NY. A Day at the Beach is only the beginning, so hopefully we get to hear more from the band in the future.
“A Day at the Beach” opens with a doo-wop flavored brand of garage pop for an innocent and inviting introduction. It’s something in the vein of the Eeries with the harmonizing background vocals, but it’s just a bit off-center from the wobbly guitars – probably a result of drinking and spending just a little too much time in the sun. A raspy Dan Tanner spearheads the vocal assault which is fully filled out by the rest of the band. He’s followed by plenty of strung-out guitar twangs that are effortlessly weaved in the midst. On the flipside “Hold Your Tongue” is a fun-filled stomp, complete with echoed chanting and a steady, tambourine-crusted rhythm. You can feel the stress building carefully through the crunchy guitar chords, almost like the track itself is a ticking time-bomb. Listen to the A-side “A Day at the Beach” right below, then head over to Almost Ready Records and snag that wax!
