Indie Spotlight Review: Attalus – The Greater Tide
January 21, 2011Posted by on
For the past couple of weeks, The Greater Tide has been on constant repeat on my iPod. This impressive EP was crafted by an up and coming alt. rock group, Attalus, out of North Carolina. According to frontman Seth Davey, their moniker comes from the name of a second century Christian martyr, serving as a reminder of his “faith and devotion.” Attalus’ debut offers a little bit of everything from upbeat, guitar-driven rockers to melancholy tracks (à la Thrice) to an ambient, piano-based ballad that closes out the record. Check out an acoustic version of “One Defining Spark” from The Greater Tide, below. If you like what you hear, be sure to pick up a digital copy of their EP on iTunes.
