Rating: 9/10Waterbodies - The Evil We Know

Waterbodies is an Alternative Rock trio from St. Catharines, Ontario.  Founded in 2008, The Evil We Know is the band’s fourth release of pure indie-rock brilliance. These guys have been making a name for themselves in and around Ontario playing as many shows as possible as well as showcasing the S.C.E.N.E.  (St. Catharines Event for New music Entertainment) festival earlier this year which featured over 150 acts.


Featuring Mike McGean on vocals/guitar, Roxy on bass/vocals, and Shane Turner on drums, they’re a band of few words and sharp wit.  I was previously unfamiliar with the band prior to this album and I had happened upon them by chance and was intrigued by the album artwork.


When I played the opening track “How To Burn Bridges” I found myself turning it up louder and louder as the track went on. The track holds a Nirvana type vocal quality with the way McGean belts out the chorus with pure visceral emotion. The rest of the album blew my mind with the way these tracks are put together and executed. The sound is rich and powerful, heavy and dynamic with a maturity of dark emotions that is engaging and enjoyable, all the qualities of a great indie rock record.


My favorite track is (track 5) “Like Sinking.” the way the verses ebb and flow and then the chorus kicks in (also paying homage to moniker Waterbodies) with the lyrics You’re just water/ dressed in skin and bone.

This is a great companion album to ABEL’s Make It Right or the new BALANCE AND COMPOSURE – “The Things We Think We’re Missing”
