Genre – Alternative/ Post Rock

Brampton, ON based alternative/ post rock band, New Design released their first ever full length album, “Far From Home” on June 30, 2015.

The fifth song, “The Things We Can’t Forget” immediately pulled me in, I can’t put my finger on exactly why this one appealed to me more than the rest, but it is definitely one of my favourites on the album. It has upbeat parts as well as slower parts all in on well-constructed song.

If you’re looking for a slower track, they have those too. The eighth song, “What We Already Knew’ is a great song, with intense sounding music and mellowed out vocals that leaves you feeling relaxed.

The album closes with the title track, “Far From Home”, and I would say that’s the perfect song to end the album, as it’s a song that leaves you wanting more from the band, as well as singing along the whole song.

Rating: 3.5/5
