Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we’re showcasing some of the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, at least one band per day, leading up to December 31st, to ring in a new year. This list is in no particular order and it is not a chart or a countdown. It’s merely a list of bands or musicians that you might not have heard of that we feel are worthy of checking out. The 29th entry in our series is a new synthpop Seattle band called The Environment.
This is a brand new band with a lot of experience. They were formed out of The Torn ACLs, which were in existence from 2006-2013. They’ve got a new album out called “All New Forever” and it’s available for free downloading HERE.
The songs on the new album came about in late 2013, following the last Torn ACLs live performance at Doe Bay Fest. Seattle pop singer William Cremin created The Environment, building on the ACLs’ straightforward pop sensibility, applying it to more directly personal subjects and dipping into the tonal, harmonic, and rhythmic vocabularies of contemporary R&B. All New Forever is about reaching out for sincere connection amidst forces of distance and change.
