ALBUM REVIEW: Wallows - Nothing Happens
There are going to be people out there who will enjoy listening to Wallows.
Described as an 'alt-rock trio', this is the debut album from the Southern California band.
I really struggled to listen to it though. The album is entitled 'Nothing Happens', and that is exactly what it felt like for me.
In fact, when I got to the fourth track 'Are You Bored Yet?' I certainly was beginning to be.
But, thankfully, that track was a little more interesting as they teamed up with female artist Clairo.
The accompanying video is quite humorous, in that it features the band in a karaoke bar, surrounded by friends and familiar faces, with a few special guest appearances.
But the style of the music on the album was a little too dark. The vocals are quite drawl-like and seem to stay in the same key throughout the songs.
Fans of bands such as The Killers and Bastille etc will probably like this group, and their live shows are said to be quite energetic.
They've already amassed a strong fan base and have performed on national TV, to good reviews.
So good luck to the band - it's just not for me.
The album is out now.
