Band of Horses’ debut album, Everything All the Time, was a powerful, emotionally raw record that put the band on the musical map. The more muscular follow-up, Cease to Begin, cemented their place as a band to cherish. There were big hooks and huge choruses that hit you square in the eyes and plucked at your heartstrings.
Ten years later and their new album, Why Are You OK (produced by Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle), recaptures the band’s gut-wrenching charm and showcases Ben Bridwell’s disarming, expressive voice – an instrument of its own which cuts right through the songs.
You can hear it on lead single “Casual Party”, and the touching, atmospheric closer, ‘Even Still’. It’s the sound of a band who have honed in on what makes them so special. Get ready to leave your heart behind when they play.
