Lynden is a new duo that lies somewhere between Jars of Clay and Paul Colman musicwise,we?re talking beautiful pop with some acoustic elements and great harmony vocals. "Pieces Vol.1" is an appetizer coz there will be a 9 track album released in the spring with these 5 tracks along with a few acoustic versions of some of these tracks plus a remix of the ballad "Gone". The lead track and the upbeat "First time" is going very well as a purchase download at burnlounge.com beating out Madonna?s new single,I think it will be just a matter of time before these boys will get signed to a major label. With moviescore soundtrack alike string arrangements,a melancholic mood and story telling lyrics - Lynden is a band to reckon with. The opening track "I?m on fire" is an outstanding pop pearl,listen to it and you?ll get one new reason why to love music. I thought at first that the first 3 tracks were a bit stronger than the last two but now I have started to like the almost sad ballad "Better" that closes the EP plus the previous track "Gone" that rises like a flower in the spring snow.
