So I've given the album a once over. The reference was Fray and Snow Patrol, which got my interest. I hear a similarity to Coldplay and also David Gray, which I hadn't noted before.
I really like New Morning. It sounds a little like Coldplay. Maybe because of the falsetto singing and the strings.
Phoenix Burn seems a little like Coldplay. The piano and driving rhythm? Also, it progresses/regresses to some falsetto.
White Fences has a U2 guitar start.
Overall, I like the lyrics and music. I figured for $3.99 I couldn't go wrong. It seems like a good, energetic album that I'll be listening to for awhile. It also looks like they are a very good live band. I'm not sure when they are coming to the Bay Area, but I'd be excited to see them.
