CD Review: At Sea Are Bringing "The New Machine" To Connecticut

From New York comes the debut album ("A New Machine") from the band At Sea. The band says that the lyrics and tone of the album are very apocalyptic due to the recent events of natural disasters and the Occupy Wall Street movement. Lead singer/songwriter Jason Brody states that “at the end of the day, it’s all about writing a great song.”
The album begins with the up tempo rocker, “The Past Is A Drug” as the uplifting beat makes the serious subject matter feel more comfortable dealing with. The big beats of “A New Machine” gives the song an epic feel as Brody’s smooth vocals floats on top of the music. Two of the stand-out tracks on this album are the deep, meaningful ballad “A Long, Long Night” and the moody, eerie cover of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way.” The album closes with slow jaunt of “These Stolen Hours” highlighted by Brody’s vocal delivery.
At Sea will begin a small, six-date tour beginning September 13 at The Space in Hamden, CT. The new album, “A New Machine” will be available on September 25 through Soap Media.CEN/RED. For more information on the band and the tour, please visit atseamusic.com.
