The Airborne Toxic Event

Recently on Absolute Radio they’ve been playing some really good new music. One of the songs they’ve been playing is called “Close to Midnight” by The Airborne Toxic Event. I liked it so much that I went out and bought the album, which arrived just over a week ago. I’ve had the chance to listen to it a couple of times now.

The album is basically in the Indie style, although some songs (such as the aforementioned Close to Midnight) contain soaring strings and are a bit more pop-friendly.

In general I was impressed by the album. Some of the songs are more memorable than others, and the lead singer can be a bit ‘shouty’ at times, but they’ve written some really solid tunes. Close to Midnight is my favourite of the album, but the first two tunes (Wishing Well and Papillon) I really like as well. Although of course all is subject to change as I listen to the album more 😉
