American Aquarium is alternative/country/indie band hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina. The band reminds me of Houndmouth, with overtones of Whiskeytown present. American Aquarium released their sixth original album, Wolves, in February of 2015. In Eric Swedlund's review of the Wolves album for Paste Magazine, he begins with a perfect summation of the band's identity:
"At one end of American Aquarium’s music is the beckoning call of the road, the neon excitement of nightclubs and bars, the urgency of rock ‘n’ roll, a life unbound and free. At the other end is home, an inescapable identity forged by bloodlines and place, those unwavering roots set deep and sturdy."
My favorite songs include Wolves, Jacksonville, & Hurricane.
