Earthtones, the fourth studio album from Bahamas is beautifully familiar, but new enough to engage fully with the tales of luckless love and the struggles of everyday life.

Exclaim!

By pushing himself and his collaborators to such bold new heights, Bahamas is sure to win over slews of new fans. This is the work of ravenous, restless musicians who refuse to be pigeonholed.

Taken together, Earthtones is a refreshing, playful set that hits a sweet spot between classic smooth soul and Jurvanen's pensive soft rock.

Northern Transmissions

Consistently welcoming and intriguing, Jurvanen is setting high expectations for what soul record can be in 2018.

Smooth, soothing lines crossing back and forth the borders between the vintage world of heating soul and the modern, slick antics of alternative indie-pop. As the tracklisting advances, the group loses a bit of the sour flavour so interesting bestowed by the first cuts, but those earthtones surely provide food for the heart on brooding lonely afternoons.

Yo, nice album you got there, where's the personality? Now, seriously, almost every song is really cheap and the lyrics are incredibly bad
