Album: Light and Shadow
Release Date: January 23, 2016
Genre: Alternative Rock
BC based alternative rock band, Within Rust released their debut full-length album, Light and Shadow a few months back. This album features 13 songs, two of which are instrumental and a short interlude. The variety of songs show a great deal of talent and their ability to blend synth music with traditional rock.
A great example of this is in the song, “The Taking”. The vocals are very rooted in the indie genre, with background music creating the perfect mix of synth and instrumental. It is very close to the type of music I listen to on a daily basis and could easily be an addition to my playlist.
Another couple of songs that top my preferences on the album are the fifth track, “Interstate” and the ninth, “Surfacing”. They both are super catchy and have a very strong rock feel to them.
If you’re a fan of rock music, or indie music, this is definitely a good album to try. It may even get you into the other genre, because I have found a new appreciation for indie.
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.
