Inimitable post rock outsiders A Burial At Sea released their second full-length album, 'Closer To Home' in February, 2024 via Berlin's Pelagic Records.
Irish-born but now Liverpool-based, A Burial At Sea made waves in 2018 when, bursting with bombastic creativity, the '...And The Sum Of Its Parts' EP turned the traditionally austere post-rock frown upsidedown. Quickly catching the attention of like-minded, international genre-benders Tera Melos, Listener and Some Become Hollow Tubes (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), A Burial At Sea subsequently spent months on tour in support, honing their incendiary craft and gaining a loyal fan base across Europe in the process.
Somewhat conversely, sophomore album 'Closer To Home' represents A Burial At Sea exploring the influence of their Gaelic roots. Written quickly over lockdown in an intense period of introspection, the record comprises years of creative ideas brought to life in the here and now. Haunting, bittersweet melodies plucked from childhood folksongs ebb and flow like a stream of consciousness as the eclectic collective dial down the overdrive and let the ephemeral, breathless spaces where distortion meets horn section sing out the loudest. A staggering refinement of the band's truly unique instrumental sound; the confidence, experience and sheer musical assuredness behind these compositions renders any lazy labels like 'Trumpet-Core' or 'Post-Rock Mariachi Music' immediately obsolete. 'Closer To Home' proves without a doubt that A Burial At Sea are indeed more than the sum of their parts; positioning the band on the crest of a truly progressive wave of uplifting, anthemic post-rock.
