Absentstar - Sea Trials

Reviewer :
Kaj Roth Format: Album
Year: 2008
Label: Canvasback/Columbia
Genre: Alternative Rock
Producer: Dan Wilson
Artist discography


Chicago based Absentstar knows exactly how to capture a listener, their emotional rock combined with Derek Ingersoll´s dramatic vocals makes a winning formula on their well crafted debut “Sea trials”.
The album is produced by Grammy award winner Dan Wilson (Semisonic) and he has put his touch over some of these songs for sure, but the band is also influenced by artists like Coldplay, Snow Patrol and Travis.
The song “Give in to me” bring thoughts to Feeder and Ash while the beautiful “If what you mean is harm” takes the throne of this year´s most emotional songs.
You´ll get a fine double package of quality rock if you decide on catching Absentstar on tour as a support act to Third Eye Blind this spring, Absentstar has potential of breaking through.
