Upset

Balancing self-control with self-belief and amplifying it with a defiant, this-is-who-we-are attitude, Against The Current might not fit in a box but that’s fine. ‘In Our Bones’ goes bigger than all of that.

Against The Current’s only hurdle is almost a back-handed complement in itself. A band virtually without flaw, with every mark hit, every box ticked - are they too perfect to believe in? If confined to the murky underground, possibly. If let loose to take on all comers, not a chance. It’s in their bones, after all.

There's not much new in the way of substance, but the execution is nonetheless pleasing enough that you can shrug off flat or dull offerings (see, e.g., "Brighter" or "Wasteland"). It's a nice record filled with nice moments. Give it a spin!

I was really into this band at first, but overtime I found myself not really coming back to this album. It might be really hook-heavy and energetic in the surface but as a whole it's really shallow and unoriginal.
Favorites: Blood Like Gasoline, Brighter, One More Weekend and Running with the Wild Things.

This album is far from creative or original, but it's got BOPS. In Our Bones is a pleasant experience with only a few real missteps. The girly energy and great vocalist is what sells it for me. The lyrics leave a bit to be desired. I'm totally giving this album more than it deserves, but I like it so fuck it.

Best Tracks: One More Weekend, In Our Bones, Forget Me Now, Blood Like Gasoline, Demons
Worst Tracks: Brighter, Young and Relentless, Roses

A common example of power pop that doesn't go... against the current, on the contrary, it could become one of the current's best agents.
