It wasn't even a month ago we premiered Adelaide trio Attonbitus' video clip for Next Time Around, but we're very excited to be diving back into their eclectic and entrancing art-rock world with debut album, David Street. The combined forces of Shivon Diana (bass), Alex Walendy (drums) and Michael Brigante (guitar, vocals), Attonbitus are one of this country's most unique groups, being so while remaining accessible in a way many other bands who fall under the (admittedly broad) "art rock" banner.
A journey into the psyche of a young band, one battling their own doubts and fears, and the myriad ways we have to collectively try and cope under intense mental stress, David Street is an utterly engrossing listen from start to finish: "This album is quite a long emotional journey," says Brigante, "I feel it’s a good representation of the transformation we have all gone through. It’s recognition of how our values change over time, and also exhibits the viscous and subtle inner dialogue I experience on a day-to-day basis. I spent too many sleepless nights writing for this album, and it was so worth it."
Take a listen below, and celebrate its release when they launch it live this Friday at the Jade in Adelaide, supported by Filthy Lucre, Somnium and Rat Ta’ Mango (more info HERE).
