Here’s an immediately engaging trio, not just due to the galloping tom-tom beats in the acoustic-guitar flavored “Reclamation” or the hooky piano riff in “Clover.” No, what’s compelling about this serious-as-sin band is its lead singer, whose Vance Joy quality also exudes an androgeny that makes him distinctively engaging. Meantime, the deep, meaningful (often obtuse) lyrics will appeal to the brainier fans of Lumineers and Decemberists. Cold Weather Company shift gears to a much more upbeat, conventional pop-rock mode, (complete with a full drumkit) for “Brothers” and it suggests that this talented band’s commercial prospects would be elevated by injecting more of this into their material.
