Autumn Still – When It Was

Monday 07th, December 2015 / 20:43
By Andrea Hrynyk

Autumn Still’s forthcoming album, When It Was, fits right into the catchy-soft-rock direction that alternative rock seems dominated by. The entire album has a gentle singer-songwriter vibe, but the Winnipeg band somehow manages to make each song sound special.

With lyrics that could have been taken straight from a diary, the album begins with “Let Champagne Go,” a passionate ballad with an angry sad feel. Later on, the tempo picks up for upbeat alternative rock tunes, “Lines” and “The Accused,” which have a subtle but striking splash of electro-pop. This juxtaposition of contrasting emotional impact continues as the heartfelt ballad “Home” starts off slow then swells in speed and impact. The smooth vocals of Bethany Swanson, Trevor Graumann, and Grant Partridge blend well together perfectly in “Home.”

Later, the slow, gentle female vocals, the basic acoustic guitar, subdued drums and the heartbreaking lyrics make tracks “And If You’re Leaving Me” and “Doom and Gloom” perfect to play on any gloomy, rainy day.

Closer “Graduation” brings an eerie and unique sound to the album. It includes passionate piano playing and hauntingly beautiful vocals, concluding the album brilliantly.
