The Sweet Remains is a trio consisting of Rich Price, Greg Naughton and Brian Chartrand, all with their own solo careers as well. Together however they have released their debut album and is currently on tour.
The album is filled with folk-rock music. What lifts this above your average album in this genre is the vocal contribution; the harmonies are simply gorgeous! All three singers complement each other superbly. First out is the song "Dance with Me" is a great example of how the harmonies work on this album. It is a beautiful song. The tempo of the album is varied and nice, slower songs are mixed with more up-tempo ones. Other highlights of the album are "Easy", "Love Song" and the closing track "Winslow´s Lullaby".
What is also a nice thing is that even though each individual singer has brought songs to the table it still sounds like an album made by the group. They manage to find a sound that really fits all three of them. The album also contains a cover of the Police´s "So Lonely". Each singer gets his chance to shine, but as mentioned before, it is the combined vocal contribution that really liftsthis album high.
If you like beautiful vocals in your music this should be a solid purchase. Fans of Crosby Stills and Nash should also like this and also fans of the Fleet Foxes to make a more current comparison. Solid songs, great vocals. If you have a chance to see these guys live, make sure you do.The Sweet Remains deserves attention!<
