My friends Evelyn and Darby encouraged me to give them a listen but with the warning: it's hella sad. And they are right. Soft piano and guitar playing to back Vernon's vocals really gets to your core in songs such as Byegone, Tiderays and, well. The entire album. Which isn't a bad thing. The lyrics are beautiful and organic. Nothing about Repave seems forced or unauthentic. Those who love the richness of Kodaline and Local Natives will love the sounds of Volcano Choir. And banjo enthusiasts. There's a lot of banjo.
