The fully self-written and self-recorded album showcases a slowed down sound, moving away from their previous noisy shoegaze timbres to achieve a “thinner, stripped back, and ultimately less noisy … album”. A wide spectrum of stylistic influences remains, but the band assures listeners that the album does not stray too far from its roots. “It’s guitar music at the end of the day,” according to a press release.
Besides was recorded in March of 2020 at the start of the global coronavirus pandemic. Trash Sun hopes the album serves as “a placid and hopefully calming set of songs during a dark period of time.” The Trash Sun bandcamp page can be found here, along with their Instagram and Spotify.
