X Ambassadors - VHS Album Review

By Chloe Dobinson in Music Reviews on 26 August 2015

Made up of 13 tracks with 7 interludes, VHS is a personal and family orientated album featuring home family tape recordings. 'Renegades', the second single taken from the album, is a soft track lead by an acoustic guitar, allowing the subtle tones and melodies to ease listeners into the album. Since its release the track has received great attention and radio air play in the UK & US and recently in topped the Hot AC chart in America.

The first half of the album showcases a slower and gentler side to the Brooklyn based band, this is epitomised with the track 'Unsteady' which features dramatic keys and a heart-warming feel - overall and showcasing lead singer Sam Harris 'emotive vocals.

'Hang On' takes a different musical approach with a catchy and upbeat sound and furthermore showcases the versatility and confidence of the group. If it's not already noted for a single, 'Gorgeous' should most certainly be a track the band release as an A-side. It's pure pop and has a similar feel to Nick Jonas' (rather impressive) recent pop it 'Jealous' with edgy keys and distant vocals from Harris.
