This debut EP produced spaciously, wonderfully by Jon Auer (you know, The Posies/Big Star!). The Broadcast Debuts sound is Brit pop / piano rock with raw, emotive vocals. Their unique musical style includes piano, Rhodes, analog synths, catchy melodic guitar leads, and rock pounding drums, and has all it's members playing multiple instruments. They balance the seriousness of their sound with a healthy self-realization, and a dash of modesty. That Brit-rock sound brings to mind a merging of Keane, Snow Patrol with Counting Crows. It's a delicate, broad-stroking sound that weaves carefully, slowly constructed melodies that build with intensity as each minute passes on all five songs here. A swooning spirit, almost dreamy, sleepy and sweeping melodies cast a very long glance over this album's very ambitious music-scape. A promising debut, Very Highly Recommended.
