Without warning 2009 proved a year of progression, growth and change for UK trio Lower Than Atlantis. Since January, when LTA were halfway through the touring cycle for their fledgling E.P ‘Bretton’, the Watford based band have gone through no less than three bassists and two drummers - not to mention, most significantly, a musical rebirth of Goliathian proportions.
With the instability of their line-up threatening a return to the ‘real world’ for the band, Lower Than Atlantis’ creative core - vocalist/guitarist Mike Duce and guitarist Ben Sansom – were pushed into a cocoon of forced introspection and reflection. Fortunately, the encroaching danger that their beloved band might be collapsing around them had an unexpectedly positive effect on the young songwriters, as the twosome found themselves reconnecting with their truest musical influences and taking stock of the harsh reality that was fast surrounding them – a UK in the clutches of recession: its youth bored, in debt and out of work.
Simultaneously reinspired, angered and afraid, Lower Than Atlantis recruited drummer Eddy Thrower and set about creating their debut full length album ‘Far Q’, a collection of songs that sees the trio completing an unintended but wholly positive metamorphosis.
‘Far Q’ is the sound of Lower Than Atlantis playing and purging like their lives depended on it – three guys playing for the love of music, playing for themselves, and in the process creating a striking partnership of music and message that is set to strike a chord with many.
