Brisvegas band Grand Atlantic are set to release a new long player, Constellations, next week on September 2nd.
Eschewing the urge to go to LA to work with a coked up producer in an expensive studio, rather they spent twelve days in an abandoned psychiatric hospital near Dunedin, New Zealand, hinting in their presser that their time working with producer Dale Cotton saw the band encounter ghosties and other examples of the paranormal, while churning out an album of indie pop rock that pays homage to the usual suspects (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Teenage Fanclub), while naturally retaining their own ‘unique sound’.
Constellations is their third long player and features the single ’Fresh Ideas In Home Security’ which is available as a free download – give them your email addy and it can be yours. http://freshideas.viinyl.com/
