The last time I posted I wrote about another band that had followed me on Twitter and mentioned they had a new album out today. While I was scrolling through Twitter this morning I saw a tweet from the band and thought I’d see if I could find the album on Spotify.
I was in luck.
I’m glad I managed to find the album because I rather like it.
When I wrote that I thought this album would be heavier than the first album I based that supposition on hearing ‘Love. Regret. Forgive. Forget.’ Initially hearing the first track on ‘Take Courage’ – ‘There’s no place like home’ – seemed to confirm that. But upon close listening (I listened to the album several times during the day) I found that there was a lot less screaming than I was expecting.
This is a thoughtful album of melodic rock, with impressive musicianship and catchy hook laden songs. ‘Take Courage’ and ‘Shark Attack’ really grab hold of the ear.
I think ‘Love. Regret. Forgive. Forget.’ will be a favourite sing-along for fans. ‘Tonight Tonight’ is very different from the rest of the album. Much slower and more melodic, a beautiful song set to a piano.
The three songs I’ve added links for span range of this album, displaying the bands diversity. If you want to hear the whole album though I’ve put the link below.
