"Transatlantic" - Basement Revolver | Review

"Transatlantic" is a song that takes you on such a journey. I'm absolutely in love.


The vocals are light and airy against the grungier guitar and bassline. This song feels transcendent and magical. The vocals are just magical and soar in such a beautiful way. The emotion is very clear in the track and the pop qualities of the track only enhance the glowing sense of love this track exudes.


With tour plans on hold last year, indie group Basement Revolver found time to wrestle with questions about identity, faith, mental illness, and sexuality. Their forthcoming sophomore record, Embody, is explicit about these new ideas and new thoughts, addressing them with a deeper sound and crisper production to adroitly express the complexity of the world. Set for release in early 2022, Embody is an album of friendship, of working out identity together, and making deeply personal art.


Basement Revolver has always centered around the friendship of bassist/keyboardist Nim Agalawatte and guitarist/vocalist Chrisy Hurn. Lead guitarist Jonathan Malström and drummer Levi Kertesz round out the band’s larger-than-life sound.


The band’s catalogue spans back to their breakout single, 2016’s “Johnny.” That single, and their self-titled EP from the same year, led to their signing with Fear of Missing Out in the UK, and later, Canada’s Sonic Unyon Records.


Heavy Eyes, their debut LP, built on their aesthetic which merges hardcore-inspired indie and ambient dream pop. In support of that they toured throughout the US, Canada, the UK, and Germany. With tour plans on hold through 2020, Basement Revolver found time to wrestle with questions about identity, faith, mental illness, and sexuality.
