For Londoners, this band has been around for a while. Recently I started to hear a few of their songs on the radio. I found myself humming the tunes. I could not get the songs out of my head. I didn’t know who they were for the longest time, but I found their sound refreshing and happy.
Yesterday, I finally found out the name of the band that I had been raving to others about. I had only heard a few songs of theirs, but I loved what I heard, so I decided to take a chance and bought the album from iTunes. As I sat and listened to the album, I kept expecting to find a song I didn’t like, but I couldn’t. Each song was unique and had an almost intoxicating sound. The lyrics were passionate and soulful.
My dad is a recording engineer, so I have grown up with music around me my entire life. This being said, I think I am a harsher critic when it comes to music than most. In a way, the the band’s harmonies reminds me of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. It is so refreshing to hear music that doesn’t talk explicitly of sex and drugs.
Right now, Sigh No More is at the top of my iTunes play list. These Londoners make such beautiful music. I am so glad I found this band. I am looking forward to seeing what is in the future for these guys. Very rarely do I recommend music, but I highly recommend this album for something new and refreshing from this talented group.
