Fans have eagerly awaited the album since the lead single and opening track, Choices, was released a few months ago. The synth riff provides a solid background for the swooping vocals and diving melodies. Choices is a fair indication of what to expect in the album: feel-good, bubbly music.
Unlikely Heroes, the fast-paced second single, has a ridiculously upbeat introduction, complemented perfectly by the signature sing-shout lyrics. The vocals switch seamlessly between a diminutive falsetto and a pounding deep bass, creating a disconcerting club effect.
Songs such as Who Said Anything (About Falling in Love)? show off The Hoosiers' range of talent. It's a ballad about pain and lost love, dominated by the piano and a powerful melody.
The Hoosiers once appropriately dubbed their genre "oddpop". Resistant to current pop tunes, The Hoosiers have created something both strange but classic, a throwback to '80s music but infused with something extraordinary and exciting.
