Review by Kristen Zarra
Shallow Side is a rock band consisting of Eric Boatright (vocals), Matt Daniels (bass/guitar), Seth Trimble (guitar/keyboard) and Heath Fields (drums). Saints & Sinners will be Shallow Sides first full-length album, with a release date of March 29th, 2019. The album was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Chevelle, Alter Bridge, Slash), preorders are available now at https://thermalent.com/shallow-side. SOUND THE ALARM is set to release the week of March 4th, with a video following shortly after.
Revival, the first track of the album, starts off with a steady guitar riff and builds into a familiar rock sounding chorus. The song is well rounded and very catchy-making it a great opening track to pull listeners in. SOUND THE ALARM, the lead single off the album, has a cohesive sound aligning with the first track, ensuring listeners, both old and new, will enjoy the song and want to hear more. Throughout the Saints & Sinners album, Shallow Side brings relatable lyrics paired with solid riffs, along with some slower and acoustic songs as well. This album will bring in new fans while still appealing to their current ones. Shallow Side closes out the album with Carry On, a track with great drumming that compliments the intricate guitar riffs, leaving listeners with a sound that represents the band.
Saints & Sinners will make Shallow Side a force to be reckoned with. The songs they created are ready for radio, and could easily hold their own alongside the bigger named artists already being played. No doubt they are a band to watch. Shallow Side is also set to tour this Spring, beginning March 29th, at Blue Note Harrison, Harrison, OH. Keep an eye out for a date near you.
