Canadian alternative rock band Ophelia Syndrome recently released their latest album "North Sea" last month. The band was looking to balance the depressing themes of loss and failure with the enjoyment of making great music together with friends who enjoy each others company.
The new ten-song release begins with slow jaunt of "Magnets" as lead singer Deanna Wells slathers her vocals all over the music's building rhythm. The passion the band pours into "Love Me Right" as almost unmatched by today's indie-bands, while the up-tempo grunge/punk feel of "Can't Be Saved" is an exciting rocker that I hope would catch the attention of the mainstream. Ophelia Syndrome become more playful with the jazz/ska rhythm of "Wayne," before closing with gentle flow of "Not Tonight."
