Advance Review - Communions: Pure Fabrication (April 23, 2020)
If you're looking for poppy, indie-rock sensibilities in music, that's what you'll find from the exquisitely talented Communions. Their sophomore album comes laden with catchy hooks, smooth guitar licks, and steady drum fills that make you want more. The Danish sibling duo play at a sound that evokes thoughts of Catfish & the Bottlmen, but not quite so harsh.
Coming in with a whopping fifteen tracks, there's a lot to like about Communions' newest effort. There's also a bit of diversity on the album, with sound ranging from the sweetness of "Birds of Passage" to the more understated "Learn to Pray" and "Signs of Life". Communions also push the right buttons on their more indie-rock oriented tracks, like "Is This How Love Should Feel?". Pure Fabrication is certainly an indie-rock achievement for Communions. It stands out among music released this year, and is one of my favorites within the indie-rock genre. I highly recommend it.
Favorite Tracks - "Birds of Passage", "My Little Planet", History (The Siren Song), "Is This How Love Should Feel?", and "Here and Now".
Rating - 4.5/5
