Album review: Forrester - Antithesis (EP)

Album review: Forrester - Antithesis (EP)

Forrester is a band based out of Lawrence, with Brian Rogers, Joe Newman, Connor Creighton, Will Chertoff, and Steven LaCour. Its debut EP Antithesis carries us through an instrumental rock experience, one not to miss.
With the initial sound on the opening track, "I Was With You To The End,” the four-song EP announces that it is not just another instrumental album. The talent behind each member is evident as Antithesis journeys from note to note, emotion to emotion. It is filled with bold guitars and sultry bass lines that walk from innocence into the depths of melancholy.
There’s a haunting section in "Anywhere But Here" that doesn't rush its message, yet twists into a steady progression of tempo that takes us into unexpected planes. The thrill behind the drums is undeniable as the heavy-hitting track "Fishes" weaves into eclectic samples and blissful guitar. The final sound of "The Forgotten" is a solid eight-minute track with an uncanny groove and irresistible energy.  
Forrester has crafted a breathing work of art with Antithesis. It is that of electro rock 'n roll, dripping with mood.
