With an acceptance seeped with celebration and introspective sadness, Irish rockers The Altered Hours ruminate on the unpredictable nature of change in their latest album Convertible. Comprised of eight tracks, the record toys with elements of psychedelia, industrial rock, and shoegaze as they tap into the unstoppable movements that occur in their surroundings – for better or worse. From the haunting “Resist Much Obey Little’ anthem of rebellion to socially-charged ballad “Radiant Wound,” Convertible is a rich album where the band exercise an open-minded approach to change while also displaying willingness to influence its direction.
