Shearwater, from Austin, Texas, come on Saturday the 21st April for one single performance at An Club. More than a decade ago, Shearwater started as the sister band of Okkervil River, but only for a while since they soon transcended them. They were officially formed a bit before the rise of the '00s and they are already responsible for a few of the most bitter-sweet and beautiful albums of our time, which are able to haunt you forever...
Their hits include:
“The Dissolving Room” (2001), “Everybody Makes Mistakes” (2002), “Winged Life”(2004), “Palo Santo” (2006), “Rook” (2008), “The Golden Archipelago” (2010), “Shearwateris Enron” (2010).
Their upcoming album, “Animal Joy”, was conceived and recorded in the midst of Texas under the instructions of Danny Reisch and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Jonsi from Sigur Ros, Frightened Rabbit). Meiburg stated that this album signals the beginning of a new era for the group, since the great epic trilogy Island Arc - consisted by their three previous albums - is concluded.
