I have been so excited for this release since I heard about it a few months ago. About 4/5 years ago I would have cited these lads as one of my favourite bands.
The intro track is a slow and contemplative piece with interesting use of electronics and an old radio sample but in keeping with the loved and signature melodic grooves of the Seattle crew before erupting into an anthemic rocker. Welcome back.
The album is everything you would want from acousticy/folk tunes to big stadium rockers. Proper american rock ‘n’ roll. And that voice is timeless. Such open production too!
