At the Mall

Absolute Losers

Absolute Losers will release their debut album At the Mall on August 5.

The Charlottetown-based, post-punk trio writes pop songs hidden beneath wiry guitar work, intertwining bass and drum parts, and nonchalant vocals. Rather than overcompensating, Absolute Losers lean into the thinness of a trio with active interplay between instruments making each part count.

 While there are hints of cabin fever and general frustration, At The Mall has a humorous air. The album is a danceable 12-track offering that confronts hardships without taking itself too seriously.

Absolute Losers celebrate the release of At The Mall at Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown. Showtime is at 8 pm.
