Snow Patrol - Wildness

Release Date: 25 May 2018
Format:
Picture Disc LP
Label:
Polydor
More Info:

Their first album in seven years finds Gary Lightbody translate deep introspection into viscerally emotive songwriting.

The songs are surefooted, displaying a newfound sense of self and purpose, and the rest of the band members rise magnificently to the occasion. “What if this is all the love you ever get?” is a heart-string-puller, posing the question nobody wants to ask. The last track, “life and death,” is a rumination, and a human story of love and forgiveness— mostly self-forgiveness for Lightbody, demonstrating that perhaps everyone ought to take this long between albums to reflect long and hard before they write. Fans of Elbow, Coldplay and Keane will be well into this.
