The Atlantic Manor: On The Wrong Side Of A Saturday Night

The Atlantic Manor
On The Wrong Side Of A Saturday Night
Self-Released [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
No label, no support and 9 albums is what Florida's Atlantic Manor resume offers up as they release their newest long player On The Wrong Side Of A Saturday Night. The album is a balanced mix of instrumental and vocal tracks that all pull from a dark, slow and burning indie folk base and never let you reach for the light. This peering out a locked door vibe creates a haunting but yet stellar atmosphere which draws the listener in and keeps you coming back with the strong song structures and interesting perspective!

Key Track: "Wood Soul"

Band With Similar Fire: Songs: Ohia
