Tomorrowish Release an Indie Alt-Rock Dream with their Debut Album "Almost Home"

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

In a twist of serendipity, strangers Conner Guarino and Max Cembalest found themselves sharing an apartment in New York City back in September 2022. Conner, with their versatile skills as a multi-instrumentalist and audio engineer, and Max, a keyboard maestro, quickly hit it off and began to collaborate musically together. Eager to play their music live, the pair found their missing piece just a few blocks away with local drummer, Pearse Devlin (Devlin et al, Shadowdaddy). After many apartment jams, Tomorrowish was born. In January of this year, the trio hosted a DIY basement show, unleashing a cascade of eight original songs, including "Count the Time." In the following weeks, Tomorrowish continued to craft new compositions and experiment with sounds, unveiling gems like "Close to Me" at Pete's Candy Store and "Choke" at the Bowery Electric. With keyboard and vocal synthesizers adding layers of sonic intrigue, Tomorrowish's unique sound was solidifying. After months of musical exploration and electrifying live performances, Tomorrowish is ecstatic to unveil their highly-anticipated debut album, Almost Home.

Tomorrowish's Almost Home is a captivating debut album that effortlessly blends elements of indie alt-rock with a touch of pop sensibility. The album kicks off with the infectious "Against The Light," featuring catchy guitar riffs that immediately grab your attention. Throughout the album, the vocals on tracks like "Finally" and "Against The Light" shine brightly, evoking a Harry Styles-esque timbre. Matt Filipek's production expertise is anything but unnoticed, showcasing a keen sense of precision and meticulous artistry.

One of the standout aspects of the album is their use of effects as a musical instrument adding a layer of depth and character to the songs. The second track of the record, and their debut single, "Count The Time," showcases fun and funky keyboard lines with a thrilling '80s style guitar solo at 2:26.

Each track on Almost Home seems to have its own infectious riff or hook, making it easy to get hooked on the entire record. "Twin Mirrors" starts off laid-back and becomes a vulnerable bop, with heartfelt lyrics like "I get sick of you some days" and "So when you wake up I'll be gone/that says everything."

"Cut Me Off" delves into the dark subject matter of relying on substances to function socially, juxtaposed with an upbeat autotune-infused melody.

"Spectral Lines" features ripping guitar solos that add an electrifying dimension to the album, showcasing the band's ability to rock out. The album concludes with "Little Bit," a more raw and organic track with acoustic guitar, exposing unproduced vocals that end on a sweet and delicate note.

Throughout Almost Home, Tomorrowish's synergy between instruments creates an indie alt-rock dream. The way the autotune vocals seamlessly meld into the guitar lines adds a unique texture to their sound. The album's lyrical content delves into the intricacies of relationships, substance reliance, and the challenges of navigating life as a twenty-something, making it both relatable and introspective.

LONG STORY SHORT: Tomorrowish's Almost Home is a striking debut album that offers a delightful blend of catchy melodies, impressive musicianship, and thoughtful lyrics. It's an album that keeps you coming back for more. Almost Home is a must-listen, and we actually mean it.
