Just WOW

Shearwater are a band pushing the boundaries of sound a step further. Although some may complain at their 80's inspired sound because of the added synths in their new album, their direction remains the same; thoughtful lyrics, engaging sounds, and music that makes top 40 sound outdated (which it is). Music that matters sometimes includes synths, drums, and a glockenspiel. Sometimes all you need is a piano. As long as the sound gives the listener some profound sense of belonging, Shearwater have done just that. Regardless of who their sound reminds you of. Carry on...

Musical path

I dunno what to feel about this one. I fell in love with Shearwater when I first listened to Rooks, and upon listening to the folk/ambient/experimental style of their early albums, seeing them transition to more rock with Animal Joy, followed by an album of covers in Fellow Travellers (to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised with their cover of Coldplay's Hurts Like Heaven), and now the new wave-esque/electronic influences (that many other bands seem to be doing) has me split.

I really enjoyed this track; it is pretty catchy. But I thought Animal Joy and Fellow Travellers were only a phase the band was going through before returning to their roots. Hopefully the rest of the album turns out good.

one of the best of 2016

Shearwater is new to me. I picked this up back in January and it's been in heavy rotation ever since.
For me it's up there with the new Radiohead and Paul Simon albums among the best of 2016.
If you're not familiar with Shearwater, you'll hear plenty of Radiohead and Paul Simon here.
Great songwriting, musicianship, and studio work. Love this album start to finish.
