Only The Young is Colony House's second full-length album. Behind the band House we find Caleb and Wil Chapman, sons of Christian pop legend Steven Curtis Chapman. Scott Mills and Parke Cottrell make up the other half of the band and together they have created a very nice rock/pop that I played a lot during the summer.
Their debut When I Was Younger (2014) was cool, but a little too much Indie Rock for my part because I'd fall for it. On this sequel, however, they have developed their sound quite a lot and now sound like a mix between Switchfoot, Grizfolk and Needtobreathe with great melodies and cool alternative ideas. Even if it’s t the songs that characterize the record, I really like the positive energy that follows it from start to finish. Just listen to tracks like "Cannot Do This Alone", "You & I" and "Remembered For" and you will understand what I mean. Even the U2 smelling "Follow Me Down" is really cool and, in a way, Colony House sounds more like a British than American band.
The quartet has really found an awesome style and can they continue to deliver albums like this, they have a very bright future for sure in the genre.
