Album Review: Antiskeptic - Stare Down The Ocean

15 September 2014 | 12:39 pm | Bailey Lions

"The songwriting feels deliciously high school."

More Antiskeptic More Antiskeptic

It’s been a long time coming, but Melbournites Antiskeptic are back.

Six years is a long time to go between albums and, while the production of the record is definitely up to modern standards, the songwriting feels deliciously high school – opting for washed out distortion and actual guitar leads for atmosphere over looped synths.

Only two original members of the band remain, but the band’s definitive sound of chunky alt. rock riffs, slamming rhythms and razor sharp vocal prowess that made them huge in the noughties is still as powerful as ever.
