We Steal Flyers is a massively acoustic duo with thorough touring experience under their belt, as the cohesive unit plays 250 shows a year, and is after an extensive US based sonic campaign as you read this review.
The music is gentle, well suited to ease your craving for orthodox country patterns and fascinations, and is resonated with true love towards the style with not many – if any – unwanted surprises to litter the crystal clear agenda. Boundaries are respected throughout, and the reoccurring relative lack of percussive instruments – there are tasteful exceptions – certainly gives an especially intimate tint to the overall listening experience. Read on to know more about this.
As noted, seldom are the times when the band utilizes explicit percussive instruments, and, whenever they do, the narrative intensity tends to grow JUST a little bit more restless in its timber and character, as is the case with track number 5 called “For You”, for example. In this particular piece, the band showcases BUT the hint of an intriguing Pink Floyd influence while remaining faithful to their country roots, and the emotional singing delivery summons Pearl Jam era Eddie Vedder. The same trend seems to be solidifying via another peak moment, “High Times” – nomen est omen, I suppose – in which the band places a clever index finger right to the pulsating intersection of post-grunge morose-ism and radio friendly soft rock delivered from heights pronounced enough to go voyeur on The Bon Jovi.
By the middle point of the release, you will be accustomed to the relatively restrained overall demeanor of the release, and your nervous system will definitely be calibrated according to the related specifications of a space cowboy, although the aforementioned Pink Floyd influence is something that remains somewhat of a beneficiary lurker amidst the consequent declarations. The album is easy (even like Sunday morning, yes) to listen to, and quite dangerless to do that with, too. It all is a matter of your current musical interest, and you virtually can not go wrong with what this band has to offer, in case your fascination equates with the gentler kind of country that is quite masterfully produced and soulfully delivered. An immediate recommendation for the devoted country aficionado, and a nice moment of lush, orthodox harmonies for everyone else.
