RIYL: Mew, Jimmy Eat World, Death Cab for Cutie
Label: Spartan Records
From Spartan Records:
While the band set sail with its shimmering guitar-pop debut ‘The Honeymoon Stagecoach’¬†in 2013, their sophomore album, ‘Capsize’, steers a course into grittier territory.¬†Capsize¬†is a collection of songs which showcases a fresh artistic trajectory, and follows our collective struggle to accept the passage of time and identify the voices in our lives that are worth listening to. And it‚Äôs immediately evident as anthemic opener ‚ÄúJust To Be With You‚ÄĚ channels the heart racing spirit of Muse, with a riff-heavy synth-forward energy that rips through the whole record. Each song is a unique statement, drawing fluidly from each member‚Äôs influences. This comes across clearly in the Mew-inspired ‚ÄúTongues,‚ÄĚ combining jangly telecaster riffs and dirty-as-hell basslines.
Remnants of early Jimmy Eat World shine through both on the album‚Äôs title track, ‚ÄúCapsize‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúTime‚Äôs Not Long,‚ÄĚ while ‚ÄúI‚Äôm an Island‚ÄĚ features lush textures and ethereal vocals akin to The Cure or Death Cab for Cutie. The longing for time to connect and create before our story is over flows through us all.¬†Capsize¬†invites us to embrace that reality, and discover our own ways to stay afloat.
