Awesome. I get the sinking feeling it's incredibly uncool to love these guys, but I love these guys. Indelible melodies and spectacular vocals; i mean, my god, those harmonies, like I can't even. I come back to their debut what feels like weekly. New song feels like they're just keeping the quality up, so fuck yeah.
singer of this band reminds me of noah gundersen. i like that
Band rules. I love em.
Still need to listen to the new one more but the first 2 are must own vinyls for me that I hope to get very soon.
Saw them earlier this year and it surprised me how much I loved their live set. Really awesome group of musicians.
Listened to the new one on Friday and it didn't sit great with me after first listen compared to their first two, but I definitely need to give it a few more listens.
"All We Ever Knew" sounds a ton like a song that Andrew McMahon's new project would put out, and I love that.
I hope this new album is a grower because it hasn't hit me as much as the previous 2 have after 4-5 listens.
This band has such good albums closers. Signs of Light is no different.
The new one has grown on me a ton. I think it's quite a solid addition to their discography but I will say that I wish Josiah was on the album more.
I only saw them 2 hours ago, but their live set made me enjoy these new songs so much more. Definitely has been a grower.
I feel like the new one is overproduced. I like a few songs, but it loses the feel that I liked so much about the first two.
Yeah that's kinda true but at the same time I can still appreciate it for what it is. I mean the first two had plenty of pop they were just recorded differently. I don't really mind the extra production. I'm sure I will like those songs just as much once I see them live. I still think the song Signs of Light is one of the best ones on the new record. Such a strong closer and a great way to end the album.
Sidenote: I now have all their albums on vinyl. Stoked to give them all a spin soon.
They were a folk pop band from the beginning, I just don't think the extra gloss suits them very well and think that most of these songs are pretty weak anyway. I like "City of Angels" a lot, though. That's one where I think the bigger sound works for them.
I will say that this album definitely has songs that I like less than others. I hate that word but some come dangerously close to filler yet I can still enjoy them. So overall the album is still a success IMO once you get past the fact that it certainly has a different sound compared to the first two. But that's on purpose, they were going for a different sound and I can see why. They said that Josiah's replacement will most likely remain in the band once he returns so they would be a 7 piece. Will be very interesting to see where they go from here with their sound and approach.
I feel like every time I'm out with my girlfriend one of their songs comes on and it's always good. I should really give them more attention.
I really want to get their RSD release. Has anyone heard it? How good is it?
Looks like I will get to listen to their RSD release tomorrow. Will get added to all digital platforms.
Watched their Bonnaroo set online. Makes me more upset about them cancelling my show next week.
