Brookside Mall
Brookside Mall - Twenty Thirteen
Region: New Brunswick
Genre: Alternative, Indie, Pop, Pop-Rock

Casually devastating and symptomatic of the time, this self-titled album traces passion and relief in eight overcast portraits. Brookside Mall is predicated on propulsive rhythm, shoegazey synth tones, and affecting words in a low-slung wail.

Selected Press // Preservation (2017)

in Exclaim: “Geography and the genre don’t matter as long as big hearted youngsters like this are willing to sing their hearts out about the yearning that we’ve all felt while growing up in sleepy, formative locales”

in Grid City: “On this EP, the songwriting remains drenched in honest vulnerability with MaGee’s one-of-a-kind, highly-relatable, cry-along choruses backed by the group’s strongest arrangements to date”

in The East: “Through deeply poetic lyrics, compelling sound, and an honest feel in their songwriting, Brookside Mall has charmed their way into our hearts yet again”
