Rise & Shine
this record widens their sound and is filled with slow-smoked soul ballads, psychedelic desert-rock instrumentals, hard-edged, bluesy barn burners and Stax-worthy funk rockers.
the album's expanded sound blurs the lines between genres and generations throughout its 11 tracks. their previous release, "Let Love Show the Way", was a spot-on salute to the band's rock & roll influences, full of big amplifiers, vintage vibe, and plenty of volume. “Rise & Shine” doesn't ignore those roots, but it pushes toward something new. Eager to explore uncharted territory, the guys make room for slow-smoked soul ballads ("I Want Love"); psychedelic desert-rock instrumentals ("The Climb"); hard-edged, bluesy barn burners ("Light the Candle"); and Stax-worthy funk rockers ("Meditation")
