I refuse to believe this band is from the East Coast. I’m from the East Coast, lived there damn near thirty years, and bands didn’t sound like this when I was actively playing music there. Atlantic Thrills sounds like some landlocked, stuck-in-a-basement Midwest shit. I know this, ‘cuz I’ve been a landlocked Midwesterner for some years now. The bouncy energy, the fun-seeking, good time vibes… You can dance to this, and shit for sure ain’t like this back home. People in, say, Passaic, New Jersey don’t know how to fucking dance! Atlantic Thrills should tour with Indiana’s Vacation Club. Cover art by Humanbeing Lawnmower zinester Ari Spivak.
