Topshelf Records recently released the latest album from Connecticut indie rockers, The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die. While the band’s name may be long, their songs are short and concise and get right to the point. The album’s lead single, “Picture Of A Tree That Doesn’t Look Okay” has this slow melodic build-up that just explodes into this chaotic, but attractive punk song. The two-minute “Fightboat” is a quick, raw garage-rock song that seems to get cut short of its full potential. The band experiment with their sound on the slow-fast pace of “You Will Never Go To Space” and “Ultimate Steve,” before finishing the album with the seven-minute progressive rock of “Getting Sodas.”
The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die is currently on a U.S. tour that will conclude July 21 in New Haven, CT. To find out more information about the band, please visit www.topshelfrecords.org/tsr2/_pages/artist_the_world_is.php.
