Lucky Soul

British collective Lucky Soul has certainly made quite a raucous in my iTunes over the past week. I'm sure you'll fall in love with them too once you hear their retro-doo-wop oldies style. Lucky Soul 's debut album The Great Unwanted is nothing that is sonically original, but that's not to disparage what they've put forth.

The Great Unwanted is like digitally remastered versions of oldies songs that were never written. The songs are carefully constructed and thoughtfully performed, that it's hard not to appreciate the result. The lead songstress, Ali Howard, has one of the most enchanting, sweet, and entrancing voices I've heard. It's not quite "cute", as it retains this sense of power and fortitude. But certainly the songs achieve much of their depth from the vocals. The Great Unwanted is really just a fun album--not necessarily based on its content but rather on the feeling that the arrangements themselves exude. One listen to the piano-trippy, foot-tapping inducing "Get Outta Town!" and you can't help but sing along. Or you might instantly fall in love with the Grease-like "Struck Dumb". Really, this album can't miss.

What are you waiting for? Buy The Great Unwanted.
Listen to "Get Outta Town!" (4.85/5)
Listen to "Add Your Light to Mine, Baby" (4.5/5)
