An indie rock band to give a listen to, Navy Skies is set to release their newest five-track EP New War on April 8th.
Navy Skies create music that’s a bit aggressive, but manages to sound laid back at the same time. Their sound is reminiscent of various 90’s alt-rock bands like Soundgarden, with slightly less anger.
The title track off the album, “New War” offers up some catchy hooks and hopeful sentiments. Hailing from Toronto, ON, Navy Skies has been touring for the past year, honing their skills and preparing to release this new EP.
Vocals on this track (recorded by lead singer Travis Caine) are similar to those done by Caleb Followil’s on Kings of Leon records. The tracks on the album offer anthemic alternative rock to get down to on good days and bad. It’s the kind of music that can get you through the tough times, but that can also make the good times even better.
“Traded hopes and dreams for apathy,” sings Caine on the track. The song is about recognizing a time for change, ending the detrimental ways of feeling sorry for yourself and setting yourself free, in a way.
Navy Skies has undergone a sort of rebirth. As it says on their website, “going back to your roots can often lead to new beginnings.” The members worked with Sydney Galbraith at Desert Fish Studios in Toronto to record this five-track reemergence onto the scene of anthemic indie rock.
The release party for New War will be on April 4th at Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto.
