Overhead, the Albatross

In this latest edition of T.L.M.T’s song of the week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Overhead, the Albatross and their new single ‘Indie Rose’.

As Overhead, the Albatross continue to build-up to their long awaited debut album Learning to Growl, the group give a understated look into the record with ‘Indie Rose’.

Unlike the large-scale bombast of ‘Big River Man’, ‘Indie Rose’ switches tone with a serene soundscape populated by gently pulsing textures and a far-reaching depth of field.

That’s not to say the track is missing OTA’s ability to breath new life into the post-rock genre. ‘Indie Rose’ is a song based around perpetual musical movement, and calmly takes us on a journey through the ambitious production Learning to Growl itself.

Upcoming Overhead, the Albatross shows:

Album listening parties – April 6th (sold-out) and 7th – The Workman’s Club.
9 April – The Workman’s Club, Dublin (Fundraiser)
2-9  May – Canadian Music Week
1-3 July – Castlepalooza, Tullamore
