Acadia put together a list of songs that helped shape their sound. The influences are clear when you give their music a listen. Check out their selections, why they picked them, and the playlist below.
Free Throw – “Pallet Town”
Raw, real, and polished all in one song and band.
The Hotelier – “Your Deep Rest”
Captivating story telling with fantastic song crafting.
The Wonder Years – “Cigarettes and Saints”
The entire The Greatest Generation album is huge influence, but if I have to pick one song it’s this one from their newest album because of the building nature of the song.
Tiny Moving Parts – “Headache”
TMP has always done a great job of blending the melancholy and the energetic.
Trophy Eyes – “Nose Bleed”
This song tends to get stuck in my head a lot. One of the best from an incredibly catchy, eclectic album.
McCafferty – “Cut Out the Pieces”
Another sad song you can dance to.
Balance and Composure – “Reflection”
Nice melancholy vibe while hard hitting. A strong build.
Citizen – “Fever Days”
A recently released song from their new album, As You Please.” Album is filled with ambience and the placement of songs is fantastic.
Pianos Become the Teeth – “Old Jaw”
This album is very dear to my heart as someone with a family member with a serious illness. This song in particular speaks to me.
Taking Back Sunday – “Cute Without The ‘E’ (Cut From The Team)”
Mainstay that cultivated many genres. Reminds us to keep true to our roots.
