Casually devastating and symptomatic of the time, Brookside Mall arrives June 29 through Front Porch Records. Be it the passing of a construction worker, family pet, drunk driver, seminal Canadian indie rock band, or beloved Blue Jays pitcher, this self-titled album traces passion and relief in eight overcast portraits. Brookside Mall is predicated on propulsive rhythm, gossamer synthesizers, and affecting words in a low-slung wail.

in GRID CITY: “On this EP, the songwriting remains drenched in honest vulnerability with MaGee’s one-of-a-kind, highly-relatable, cry-along choruses backed by the group’s strongest arrangements to date”
in THE EAST: “Through deeply poetic lyrics, compelling sound, and an honest feel in their songwriting, Brookside Mall has charmed their way into our hearts yet again”
