Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Athlete

Tourist

2005-06-02

Less smug than 2003’s Vehicles & Animals, Athlete’s decided to grow up a bit in words and deeds on Tourist. Words: about the pointier parts of life: pain/sorrow/loss/broken or missing parts/hope for something better. Deeds: a sound that follows down Coldplay’s well-frequented path with soaring bass and expansive guitar – more expressive, less quirk, less comic. Cheers, mates.
