Distant Like You Asked is broody, anger fueled music that has pushed the bar. Like Pacific are showing the world this is what they do, be prepared for more intensity to come from this five piece.
For this gig I headed over to Edinburgh and It was good to see that during the sound check all the bands were getting along, including the local support, showing that the scene and band community is alive and well.
“Having seen these guys four times last year, they always seem to be on the edge when headlining a show (or stage) compared to when they don’t. But, tonight none of that was present and they really blew me away”.
“The EP is a stand-out release from the dark rock trio. Known for telling stories through their songs, this release shows a perfect example of just that. Using a unique vocal range to increase intensity in the story”.
The overall album is full of monster breakdowns, atmospheric riffs, smooth cleans and guttural growls.
The hurt these guys have been through in the past few years can be felt throughout the album, even without being familiar with the back story you get a sense of what they’ve been through.

This is an album that new fans will love as it is a fantastic entry point for newcomers but, old fans will have to put it on repeat to get used to this new sound.
