Colony House's "Only The Lonely" Is Celebratory and Somber
Colony House has teamed up with Descendant/RCA Records to bring you their brand new album Only The Lonely.
"Cannot Do This Alone" sets off the album on a positive note. Vocalist Caleb Chapman sings of the importance of human connection in family and love in general. The message is that we simply need other people in our lives and it's normal to admit it. A bunch of sing along "oh's" are sprinkled throughout and will get any crowd of listeners figuring out the melody so they can test their own vocal chords.
From here we jump into "1234" which is defined by quick guitar runs and an overall band leader vibe with a lot of change in direction. The whole feel of the album definitely cannot be summed up in a few words because we have two ends of the spectrum here. Tracks like "Lonely" and "3:20" feature loud, almost laid-back, bluesy guitar tones while "Where's Your Father Been," "Follow Me Down" and "This Beautiful Life," the album's closer, are more slower and tend to feel more lengthy in terms of the song's emotional trek.
The album also features previously released singles that each came with a music video attached in one way or another. "You & I" saw a music video come out for it 4 months ago while "You Know It" had its very own come out 6 months ago. Together having these tracks on the album breathes some safe familiarity even though they arrived so long ago.
In other news, January 11th saw the band performing on Late Night with Seth Meyers and January 16th will see them performing on The TODAY Show. On top of that, Colony House also have their very own headlining tour coming up to give them the opportunity to make a huge name for themselves.
