The Whitsundays

January 29, 2008

The debut album by Edmonton based band the Whitsundays gets off to a slow start with two good if unremarkable songs, but kicks into gear with “I Want It All” and maintains it for the rest of the album. They have a early to mid 60’s inspired pop rock sound, with most of their material being midtempo or so, though they slow things way down for a closing ballad called “Bring It On Home.” They add some modern indie pop touches to the mix, too, which keeps their music from sounding like mere imitation. A good first album, definitely worth checking out. Standout cuts: “I Want It All,” “Antisocial,” “Sorry James” and “Already Gone.”
