"Pacific Theater: Animals at Night"

Pacific Theater plays a mostly moody and brooding form of rock. They allow the songs to pulsate and build, giving things a nice, thick feeling of atmosphere. The first track on the album, “Taj,” is over nine minutes long and they use that time span to great effect.

They also mix in some nice electronics throughout the album, giving the whole affair a Cure sort of feel, with maybe a tinge of the lighter side of Deftones for good measure. I really dig the overall sound that they’ve created and I would love to catch these guys live.

I also should point out that the pre-release copy of the record came in a CD-sized gold envelope, with their name and track titles typewritten (as in, typed out on a typewriter) on the outside. The CD itself was a burned copy from Staples, or possibly Office Max, with a homemade white label and the image of a sperm whale stamped on it. I mention all this out because it was the right mix of artistic attention and a D.I.Y. approach that I love in bands who bring creativity to all aspects of their craft.

So in short, check these guys out. They deserve all the attention that they can get. - Shakefire


LP: Animals at Night. Coming Fall 2009

Remix album coming soon.



Pacific Theater began in the summer of 2007. A year later, band members Daniel Ryan, (vocals, guitar) Daniel Bellury, (bass, guitar, synthesizer) Gina Yates, (vocals, piano, synthesizer, accordion, oboe) and Adam Travis, (drums, drum machine, synth, guitar) recorded their album, Animals at Night, in a church that had been renovated into a recording studio just outside Montreal. Mixing was completed by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Beirut, Final Fantasy) in late 2008 and mastering by Paul Gold (Grizzly Bear, Juan Maclean, Sufjan Stevens) in January 2009. 

Currently, Pacific Theater are writing and recording new material. Shows are being scheduled across America for 2010.
