Noonan attacks the initial roadblocks, relapses, fond recollections, reminiscing and ultimately, the final resolution of a toxic relationship. Throughout the album, there is consistency in storytelling, that when listened to in sequential order, will bring a sense of apathy to the listener. Personal yet still universal, AGOSJ brings urgency in its’ songwriting.
For the recording of the album, Fossil Youth tapped producer Jay Maas (Citizen
, The Menzingers
) and headed to Boston, MA. You can hear hints of the laidback groove of Turnover
melding with the quiet/loud dynamics of Balance And Composure
. Songs like "Minco" & "Sitting In A Spinning Room" showcase the bands penchant for slowing things down and compelling the listener to firmly grasp every melody, while songs like "Forest Eyes" and "Late Night Swim" hit you right in the face and force you to bop your head with the beat.
