Ontario band Gentlemen Husbands will be releasing a new EP entitled House of Cards next week (September 30th), but you can check it out now on MUCH’s First Spin! To help, we have broken down each of the four tracks on the record for you.
1. Shelter Valley
There’s a warmth and familiarity to the melody of this song, characterized by its steady bass line, country-rock template and infectious chorus that can we can definitely see ourselves humming for days.
2. Come Down
Continuing off from the previous track, the band segways into this next track that boasts a similar melody. In fact, if we mashed the first two tracks of this album together, it would make for a pretty cohesive and seamless six-minute track. Come Down lacks the catchy chorus in comparison, though.
A more defined introduction and opening verse to Bloodlines helps build to an explosive chorus of crashing drum symbols, bursting bass lines and a triumphant rise of harmonizing voices. A departure from the EP’s first two tracks, but a welcome change in pace and tone.
4. Wandering Eye
A jangly keyboard line makes this track the most pop song on the EP and probably the highlight. Its throwback sound paired with the sugary sweet lyrics ends this record on a positive and celebratory note that makes us want more.
