Through 10 tracks, the band sounds more like an orchestra rather than a five piece, with swirling guitars, pounding drums and layer upon layer of sound. The experiment could have easily sounded like a band using studio gimmicks to cover up weak songs, but Twin River is a band that clearly has the chops to deliver an infectiously good song, and they manage to do so throughout the album. Proof is in songs like “It Won’t Be Long,” and “Laugh It Off” that mage to cross several genres; the result is eclectically enjoyable.
This full length is a pretty big departure from their mellower 2012 EP, Rough Gold, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
