Euston

by An Overnight Low

“Euston” sounds like what R.E.M. would sound like if they were downgraded from being a spectacle arena-rock band to being a small folk-rock band performing in a cafe or in the intimate setting of your own living room. -Ben Meiklejohn, Mainley Media

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An Overnight Low: Euston
www.anovernightlow.com

Delayed at Heathrow airport for nine hours and facing another six on my flight home for Christmas, I pulled out the pictures, videos and interviews I collected over the past year while studying at The University of Manchester. Over several cups of Costa coffee, I organized these scattered items in folders on my laptop while waiting for my flight. The year of distance provided an objectivity allowing me to stitch together unrelated moments into common themes. The collected events spoke with a new voice creating new stories.

On my return to the university after the holidays, I continued using spare time to travel around the UK. En route, I continued to rearrange my travel artifacts. On one particular trip I used a typical song format as a template. I used journal notes and pictures I had taken at The Queen of Hearts pub on the corner of Oxford St. and Wilbraham Rd. in Manchester to create the song “Sleeper.” The videos I made at “The Castle Arms” in Edinburgh yielded “Trainspotting Extras.” The picture I took of sunlight glowing through a glass of beer at Teuchter’s pub in Leith inspired “Smile”. The song cycle in "Euston" represents the stories I learned from my journeys.

The resulting song cycle that makes up the album plays like a great road movie, and hits all the essential road movie bullet points along the way, including lost loves, fading friendships, loneliness tinged with excitement, travel in general and the characters one meets along the way on any journey. - Rick Johnson, Portland Press Herald

With clean guitar sounds and generous doses of vocal harmonies, light soft-pop drumming and chord progressions that keep it simple, “Euston” sounds like what R.E.M. would sound like if they were downgraded from being a spectacle arena-rock band to being a small folk-rock band performing in a cafe or in the intimate setting of your own living room. -Ben Meiklejohn, Mainley Media

With an acoustic guitar strum as foundation, these songs are mostly more subdued. There is an alt-country weariness to much of it, fueled by the kind of nostalgia that can be induced by sifting through the detritus of three years abroad. -Sam Pfeifle, Portland Phoenix
