The Trews are back with a new self titled studio album. The rockers are based in Toronto, but their roots are from the east coast town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia. With two EPs and 5 other studio albums, this band keeps busy, but never ceases to impress fans all over. The rockers of The Trews are Colin MacDonald, John-Angus MacDonald, Jack Syperek and Sean Dalton.
The album has a bit of a different sound than the older Trews albums, but you can still tell it’s their music. It has an older rock feel to it. It also has a more raw sound than the majority of music these days.
The songs I really like off this album are “Age of Miracles”, “In the Morning (Featuring Serena Ryder)” and the album opener, “Rise in the Wake”. Each of these songs brings a different feel to the album and definitely stands out. And my favourite parts of the songs are definitely the intricate guitar playing and the soft singing.
I’m an aspiring entertainment journalist from Fredericton, New Brunswick, and a 2017 graduate from St. Thomas University with majors in Journalism and Psychology.
Aside from psychology, my passion has always been for music and storytelling. It is my dream to be in the industry, and music journalism seems to be the perfect fit. Along with a bit of photography dabbling, I think I’m pretty well on on my way.
When I’m not working, I’m listening to music, finding new artists to love, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or playing with my cats.
