Timing is everything for the Currents’ upcoming debut full-length album The Place I Feel Safest set to be released June 16th. Originally formed in 2011, the band has worked on finding their identity and sound. During the band’s time together they have previously released 2 EP’s with their former singer. With changes in their lineup (adding new vocalist Brian Wille), and label (SharpTone Records) the guys hit the studio to birth the phenomenal album The Place I Feel Safest. The band spent two years laying down instrumentals and incorporating Brian’s lyrics.
Currents are entirely dedicated and passionate about their debut and it shows in the entire album. The album is cohesive and narrates the internal struggles Brian depicts as he fights his demons, especially in songs such powerful tracks as “Forget Me,” “Dreamer,” and “I’m Not Waiting” which are hands down my favorite tracks. Their strategic and impeccable sense of timing in not only the pacing of their track but the construction of the entire album, has resulted in a prime example of the bands cohesiveness.
I’m definitely excited to see what’s in store this year for Currents. You can check out their singles on Spotify and watch their music video for “Night Terrors” now before their debut drops June 16th. Share with us what your favorite tracks are!
