The Age Of Rockets: Hannah

The Age Of Rockets
Queue Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
First things first - if you like The Postal Service you will probably enjoy the new release from New York's The Age Of Rockets. Hannah is the groups sophomore release and it is full of subtle electronic blips and beeps that serve as the perfect backdrop for their indie style song structures and supporting harmonies. The album is really driven from lead singer Andrew Futral’s delivery that connects with the listener and provides the emotional attachment to the record that makes it stand out.

Key Track: “Avada Kedavra”

Band With Similar Fire: The Postal Service

Elephant & Castle (mp3)
