Try Harder? I doubt that's possible...,
This review is from: Underachievers, Please Try Harder (Audio CD)
The seven-piece band offer perfectly constructed, acoustic driven melodies. If their music had an image it would be that of someone curled up in front of a coal fire with a glass of red wine in their hand and a tear in their eye.
Your Picture is the stand out song on this album. It sounds strikingly similar to Suzanne by Leonard Cohen but sung in a Scottish accent. Imagine that.
There is a definite Motown influence on Let Me Go Home. Maybe this influence is referenced in the song: "sound of Temptations...Supremes in our dreams." The song also features a gorgeous refrain which sounds a lot like: "baby love, my baby love."
Underachievers Please Try Harder is a beautiful album. If you don't feel the need for power chords and angry screams but want music that speaks to your soul, buy this.
