Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – Sunsets & Full Moons, The Script

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at a the latest album by The Script – Sunsets & Full Moons

 

Something Unreal

This is the first song on the new album and it is a great introduction to the next chapter of the scripts music career. I like the fact that the music gradually builds up with different instruments to create this really melodic feel with a pop sound. The use of string instruments is a treat and feels like a more mature sound for the band whilst also keeping to their roots. The lyrics are poetic and intertwine with a song that you can feel the emphasis of the Emotion throughout. The way that there are solo piano melodies throughout in the middle of the verse is effective and really stands out.

Run Through Walls

This song focuses on I feel the music again as yet again it feels emotional and poetic and when you listen to the lyrics there is a real sadness to this song. It is evident through the lyrics and the use of piano and using softer toned instruments really emphasise this.

If You Don’t Love Yourself

This song feels like it is all about uplifting and saying lyrics that genuinely mean something instead of creating a track of just songs to get fans to buy a track. Following the theme of the album, it is a very melodic sound and the way that they intertwine with the lyrics is very effective.

Underdog

When I first heard the beginning of this song, it reminded me of Taylor Swift because this way he says given up sort of echoes the way she sings certain words on You Need To Calm Down. I don’t know if this is a new style of singing but not really a fan. Saying that the song again is all about the lyrics and the uplifting essence around them. The piano yet again plays the hero in this song and really creates an all round sound for this song.
