EDITORS’ NOTES

Having long circled themes of youthfulness, Noah & the Whale navigate the highway to adulthood on their fourth record. But while Charlie Fink’s lyrics unpick the uncertainties of growing up—as amid the fiddle-laced “Lifetime”—there’s an unquestionable sure-footedness to the glistening sound. Hurtling from exultant New Wave (the Anna Calvi-assisted title track) to John Hughesian ‘80s crooning (“There Will Come a Time”), Heart of Nowhere is a confident blast of timeless indie pop.
