Good bands write good music, but great bands bring something more – an inherent vibe that radiates out of anything they do.
Like Weezer or the Beach Boys before them, Wallows have that innate ability to make any day that little bit sunnier just for hearing one of their songs. It’s a trait that runs right through the centre of their second album ‘Tell Me That It’s Over’. A mix of California sun and crooning Strokes-esque cool, from opener ‘Hard To Believe In’, it’s evident the Los Angeles three piece have stepped things up a gear for album two. ‘I Don’t Want To Talk’ bounces of the walls with an as much sadistic glee as nervous energy, while ‘Marvellous’ is nothing short of glorious.
An antidote to the mundane, ‘Tell Me That It’s Over’ is an album you’ll never want to end.
