We’ll be upfront about this—we haven’t been huge fans of the past couple full-lengths from Charleston’s Band of Horses. They each had some stand-outs, but, overall, they fell a little flat compared to earlier releases.
But the two tracks that they’ve released from their coming fifth release—titled why are you ok and out next month—have left us with high hopes. Harkening back to upbeat hooks and straight-up southern pop-rock, we like the return to the band’s roots both tracks seems to hint at. Give em a listen below. You can pre-order the new album via Band of Horses’ site.
