Into The Glow
Canadian indie-folk from a cast with a wealth of talent and universal stories to tell, though it begins with smooth female vocals and a folky-pop approach, it doesn’t take long for fuzzy guitars and alt-rock moments to enter the equation. As the album progresses, the band deliver gentle melodies with dual gender vocals that often build into fuller rock anthems, though songs like “Wild” remain calm with keys and breathy female vocals and there’s a couple of all too brief interludes with a hazy Mazzy Star quality. It’s no surprise that comparisons to The Lumineers have been thrown their way, and if the quality of song craft present here is as appreciated as it should be, Locomotive Ghost could earn a similar level of fame. This is a remarkable album.
