Quiet Company- Transgressor (2015)

Posted by KB on 2/24/2017 to Reviews
Quiet Company, led by Taylor Ruse, knows it way around a melody. They wring the most out of every instrument giving each moments of prominence and they create drama or bombast at just the right time. Their song structure is similar to Okkervil River but bigger and fuller, which isn't such a surprise since both bands are from Austin, Texas. Ruse writes intelligent and personal lyrics channeling his life's experiences and in this case relational. On "Transgressor" they get little more poppy treading into Semisonic territory with clever intertwining of the riff and the tune and it's welcome, not a deterrent. Looking forward to their next drop.
