about

Rolling Stone 4 Star Review.
Constellations - Much hyped Aussies go their own way on album three.... like musical peers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Grand Atlantic have proved they know how to balance psychedelia with ballsy rock hooks. Matt Coyte

The Australian 4 Star Review.
Constellations continues the bold, melodic rock sound that characterised the band's 2007 debut This is Grand Atlantic and 2009's How We Survive.
Lead singer Phil Usher's grainy vocal bursts through a dense jungle of reverb to open the LP on the anthemic Searchlights, before the band ups the tempo on agreeable rock ramble Central Station Blues.
Grand Atlantic channels Oasis on the following title track, distorted guitar, falsetto third harmonies and bolshie riffs transporting the listener back to the anti-grunge movement of the mid-90s, before rising to a crescendo of A Day in the Life excess. It's a remarkable track.
The stark Mountains Too Steep and Voyager, a haunting exercise in melodic melancholy, are held aloft by a kind of pseudo-symphonic white noise; a beautiful, if unidentifiable, wall of sound that seems to fill every available space.
Grand Atlantic rocks out on the funky Fresh Ideas in Home Security and the seriously syncopated No Man's Land before drawing on the ghosts of Seacliff and heading into the darker recesses of the mind for the bleak but beautiful acoustic closer Queenie. Tim Douglas
