Will Driving West - The Breakout

Every now and then you find a band that brings things back back to the basics. The Breakout is one of those albums and Will Driving West drives the album with a very simple, beautiful sound that is deep in it's simplicity.

The cello and and beautiful harmonies blend well with interesting guitar progressions that keep you interested from first to last minute. Listening to the album I sense a bit of Joshua Radin, Elliot Smith and Snow Patrol influences and Will Driving West puts together a great cohesive album.

It's hard to pick a favorite song on this album but "October's Coming" was the one that got my attention first. It has a very melancholy sound and really sets the mood for change, beautiful metaphors and has a very retrospective feel to it.

Second favorite has to be "Thieves". The guitar and the cello play against very well in this one and the harmonies are right on point.

This band is fully independent and they have their album streaming on their site right now, so check it out here and let me know what you think. If you like it, buy the digital album here!!
