With the release of the Panic Room EP, Graveyard of the Atlantic takes a new approach to some classic genres to create a sound all its own. Lush with addicting progressions, the record boasts the aesthetic of classic alternative and emo anthems but moves those genres forward in an intelligent way. 

 

The first single, “The Wolf," immediately grabs you with its infectiously haunting guitar hook. The dream-like atmosphere continues into the verses but builds in intensity as it plays on, ending in a flurry of power chords and crashing drums. "The song was inspired by my nephew, who died a week after birth. It’s a story about both family tragedy and the simultaneous crumbling of a relationship around that tragedy,” explains songwriter Dave Debany of the band’s single.

The first single, “The Wolf," immediately grabs you with its infectiously haunting guitar hook. The dream-like atmosphere continues into the verses but builds in intensity as it plays on, ending in a flurry of power chords and crashing drums. "The song was inspired by my nephew, who died a week after birth. It’s a story about both family tragedy and the simultaneous crumbling of a relationship around that tragedy,” explains songwriter Dave Debany of the band’s single. 

 

Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Graveyard of the Atlantic is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. "'The Wolf' has everything that we do in one song. It’s catchy but not saccharine, it's heavy but it breathes, and at times uses some familiar undertones that call back the alt rock of the 80s and 90s, without leaning on the nostalgia of it all." says the band of their sound.

 

Singer and songwriter Dave Debany returned to music in 2011 after a long hiatus. After playing bass for a few years, around 2014 he began writing solo material as a way to push himself creatively. Allowing himself full control over how his ideas came to fruition grew in importance as time went on and eventually, when his band splintered, he devoted all of his time to his own project. 

 

Graveyard of the Atlantic grew up quickly with the addition of guitarist Adam Anderson--a cerebral counterpoint to Debany's songwriting--and after a few shows as a duo, the pair knew they were onto something, adding drummer David Deitch and bassist Mike Gonzales shortly after. 

 

Now well beyond "solo project," Graveyard of the Atlantic is a group of like-minded musicians who both compliment and push each other. In fall of 2018 the lineup, fresh off a flurry of songwriting and shows, was ready to record their first statement as a unified band--the Panic Room EP is a testament to that work. 

 

While the band is always writing new material for upcoming releases and live performance, they're excited that Panic Room is available to show what they're capable of doing. The EP is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets.
