The Accidentals Announce Upcoming Album With New Single And D&D Inspired Music Video

Today, indie folk-rock trio The Accidentals announced the October 1st release of their new album Vessel, co-produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Rey) and Tucker Martine (Decemberists, First Aid Kit). Following their critically acclaimed release Time Out Session 1, the new album injects the band’s sound with a shot of alt-rock muscle. “Go Getter,” the first single off the album, reminds the listener that “sometimes you have to do something to get through something” with a “catchy-as-hell” hook – “Shake off the pressure, sometimes you’ve gotta burn it down to build it better.” 

"Go Getter" single art

‘Go Getter’ is all about not getting bogged down in the what if’s,” the band explains. “Each single art on the Vessel album is just a piece of the final album art. When the album comes out the whole picture is revealed.” They continue, “The Vessel album is about letting go of the small stuff and keeping an eye on the wider perspective. ‘Go Getter’ just feels like it embodies the spirit of the album; it says, ‘we’ve got this.’”

The follow-up to their acclaimed Time Out (Session 1) EP released earlier this year, Vessel was in the process of being recorded with celebrated producers John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Rey) and Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, First Aid Kit) when the pandemic shut things down indefinitely. Rather than press pause, the trio transformed their attic space into a state-of-the-art recording studio with gear from their sponsors to finish the album on their own. Sav and Katie took the reins as co-producers and engineers, switching off not only strings and vocals, but also acoustic and electric guitar, bass, violin, viola, cello, mandolin and the occasional banjo, with Michael laying the foundation on drums.   

Vessel is a testament to the group’s ability to not only persevere, but to thrive in moments of uncertainty. “The whole album is about perspective,” they explain. “It’s about the parallax motion of feeling like you’re moving in slow motion while simultaneously things are flying by at an incredible pace.” They continue, “Depending on where you’re standing, your perspective on what’s really happening changes. If you simply widen your viewpoint, things become clearer.”
