The Transatlantic is an American rock band based out of Springfield, Illinois, which formed in the spring of 2010. It is comprised of Kirk Donley (vocals/guitar), Dustin Sendejas (guitar/vocals), Phil Sgambelluri (bass/vocals), and Brandon Carnes (drums). Their first ep "Small Towns Burn a Little Slower," was recorded and produced by Dustin Burnett in the summer of 2011. With smooth vocals, steady beats, and a pinch of flourishing on the guitars, The Transatlantic's brand of windows-down American rock music is both hooky and impressive. They meld Jimmy Eat World-style pop/rock with roots-rock a la Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen in a way that makes their music appealing to listeners of all ages. Atop this canvas is painted lyrics that speak to middle-American/Midwestern life, with recurring themes of big dreams, small towns, and teenage heartbreak. The Transatlantic is road-worn, but not weary, and is ready to deliver their rock n' roll to listeners the world over.
