The pastel colours on the album cover fit the music perfectly. It’s as tame and cute as that, which does in no way take away from its quality.
With the same feel-good-riffs and quirky lyrics they’ve relied on for a while now, it’s an album that can work as a pick-me-up as well as the soundtrack to a nice barbecue with friends and family.
For some reason, this indie concept works with this album, but if it will work for another questionable. But that’s nothing we need to concern ourselves with right now.
The album is not too polished, it definitely feels very real. Some say frontman Darwin Smith’s voice is unexciting, but that definitely makes it feel more comforting and familiar. While the music feels like a summer album, the lyrics reflect on relationships, love and other encounters. Double Down is a very simple and energizing.
