Release Date: April 14, 2017
Fredericton, New Brunswick band Brookside Mall, named after a mall on the city’s north side, are releasing their newest effort, Preservation, on April 14th. The short but sweet album is only six songs but that’s all the time you need to get a feel for this band. Made of mostly short songs with only one song over three minutes long, ‘Preservation’ is sure to please the band’s fans.
“Eternal Summer”, “Preservation”, “Spring”, “Natural Light”, “Technicolor” and “Garden” make up the release. The poppy songs show off the song writing skills of the band with the catchy lyrics, pleasing harmonies and upbeat vibe throughout the songs. It’s difficult to pick one song that stands out from the rest – all of the songs showcase the unique sound of the band. After the notes of “Garden” end it will leave the listener wanting more of this Fredericton band.
Their fans are sure to be pleased with the new music and it’s sure to attract even more people to their music. Preservation shows how the band has improved since their last release in 2016, Young Champion.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
