Review of The Town Heroes – Sunday Movies (GroundSwell/Warner Music Canada)

The Town HeroesAlthough some might argue there are far too many sonic limitations of having only an electric guitar and drums as a part of your band, Halifax’s The Town Heroes manage to keep the proceedings interesting throughout their latest record. For every flat-out rock moment such as Berlin Wall, New York City and Rust Away, the group shifts gears to a slightly more pop sound on Laser Eyes and Holdin’ Up Grants. Rather than confining themselves to what they might be expected to sound like, employing these subtle changes in their sound make Sunday Movies worth checking out.
