In ‘Decades’ we have the emergence of a band who have clearly completely fallen for folk music as a genre and are committed to bringing that out in their music. The energies and enthusiasm that translate from ‘Decades’ is enough to make even the strongest naysayers of the genre to not only fall in love with it, but fall in love with the band and their sound as well.
‘Louise, Louise’, ‘Summer’, ‘Lover Who Knows’ and ‘Desperado’ should all be given particular praise for their ability to convey the spirit of an entire genre, whilst simultaneously throwing up an exciting level of variety and originality in how they’re all written.
In fact, each and every song on the album feels fresh and invigorated, bringing a whole new level of life to the folk scene that should be enough to excite any potential fan. From the latino-driven pulsating sound of ‘Desperado’ to the whimsicalness of ‘Lost’, ‘Decades’ is an album that promises to never get old with how original and varied it can be.
