The Academic - Aftertaste

The Academic - Aftertaste

Irish alt-rock quartet The Academic make a very welcomed return to the scene with their latest single, Aftertaste. Following on from their massive debut album 'Tales From The Backseat', released at the start of 2018, the band ramp up the energy as they unveil a soaring pop masterpiece. With its stadium-ready choruses and huge melodies, the four-piece show-off some fine-nurtured maturity as they continue to carve out a name for themselves. Speaking of “Aftertaste,” frontman Craig Fitzgerald says, "When it came to ‘Aftertaste’ it was a lot different to how we worked before. From a production standpoint we were a lot more involved. Sometimes there is a preconceived notion out there that if you are a guitar band, you should be in a particular lane. Our mindset when writing, is less defined by what the stereotype of an indie band should sound like and be more about letting our songs be the best they can be." Take a listen for yourselves below.
