At the Mall
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.
