Band: Everlost US
Album: Live And Let Go
By: M. Loop
Jared Kay’s solo project Everlost is a well produced alternative rock effort. He plays all the instruments and performs all the vocals and does a fine job.
For fans of Coldplay and Keane the overall sound is polished and aimed at the youth indie rock market.
The songs focus on youthful relationship angst.
The album starts out with a very pretty instrumental “Breathe”.
“I’m Doing My Best” rocks out and has a very hooky chorus.
“Tell Them They’re Wrong” tells a story that is involving.
“These Terrible Hands” has a very nice acoustic guitar part and melody and is quite beautiful.
“Wait For You” has some nice unexpected chord changes and an interesting vocal arrangement.
This album shows a world of potential and I look forward to hearing this talented artist develop over time.
