Let the Road

Let the Road

Bolstered by the success of “Me and My Broken Heart (which samples Rob Thomas’ “Lonely No More”), the debut album by Manchester, England’s brightest young things carries a heady torch for pop and R&B. And main producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Maroon 5) establishes an unshakable sheen throughout. The title song about the warmth of home features a sunny a cappella that intersects fittingly with heavy orchestration and a marching feel. The Ed Sheeran–penned “Hotel Ceiling” is a heartbreaker, “Appreciated” is perfect acoustic-driven pop, and the melancholic “Beautiful Excuses” is as beautiful a song as any released since 2000.
