For this album let’s try a play-by-play for each song. Read along as you listen or scan beforehand and pick out the tracks that sound best to you!
The album starts out real slow, short, and auto tuned.
It quickly picks up with a nice guitar riff leading to their first jam: Radiate (Like You Do)
Can’t Repeat It - I can see being screamed by all their fans at their concert.
That Feeling - Solid song. But nothing really special. A nice guitar solo towards the end wraps this up nicely.
Keep Up - this track pumps the breaks a bit. It’s a more relaxed, music forward song until the breakdown really jams out at the end and makes you believe they can close out a concert on this tune.
The Middle - this is your obligatory “na na na naa na, na na na naa na” song that every band has at least one of.
Glutton - this song has my favorite instrumentals on the album. This feels like the guitarist’s song.
Float - this one is down-tempo and sway-worthy. Then, once again, HARBOUR builds and builds until the listener gets a bit of fireworks towards the end in the form of another sweet, sweet guitar solo.
The flagship song: Thoughts on Letting Go is peaceful, short, and ends with the shutting of a door.
Easy - this is really a vessel for the band’s message of “Some things are too good to quit.” The stop/start about halfway through is pulled off well and followed by some energy and sass before slowing back down to bring this roller coaster to a close.
Just skip Think For Yourself. Unsure what’s going on there…
Thank you for following along - hope you enjoyed discovering this album!
