Basement Revolver have shared a video for their new single, “Transatlantic.”
The track follows the release of their recent single, “Skin.” Both of those singles come from Basement Revolver’s forthcoming sophomore album, Embody, out in early 2022. “Transatlantic” was influenced by Death Cab for Cutie’s “Transatlanticism.” The anthemic pop tune is definitely a must-listen.
The accompanying video sees Basement Revolver vocalist Chrisy Hurn-Morrison performing along to the tune in front of projections. Throughout the clip, she switches outfits in some seamless cuts.

“Desperate to feel like her body was okay or good enough, Chrisy was perched on the edge of the dock when this song began tumbling out,” a press release explained of “Skin.” “[It’s] the first time she has explicitly written about the struggles she feels with her body.”
The forthcoming album sees Basement Revolver grappling with themes of identity, sexuality, faith, and mental illness. Using a deeper sound and crisper production than their debut, the band explores new sonic and thematic territory.
Embody follows Heavy Eyes, which merged their hardcore-inspired indie sound with dream pop. Now, Basement Revolver are cementing a new sound. Embody “is an album of friendship, of working out identity together, and making deeply personal art.”
Basement Revolver was born of the friendship between bassist/keyboardist Nim Agalawatte and Hurn. Lead guitarist Jonathan Malström and drummer Levi Kertesz complete the band’s larger-than-life sound.
