Rogue Wave - 'Nightingale Floors'

Rogue Wave are back to the jangling, melodic indie rock they do so well

Rogue Wave - 'Nightingale Floors'

Album Info

  • Label: You
6 / 10 Over the past 11 years and four albums, Rogue Wave have had a miscellaneous cast revolving around original members Zach Rogue and Pat Spurgeon. While the faces have changed, their sound, barring the disappointing electro of fourth album ‘Permalight’, has largely remained the same. With this, their fifth, they’re back to the jangling, melodic indie rock they do so well. Opener ‘No Magnatone’ shuffles along pleasantly, as does much of the rest – and that is perhaps the album’s biggest problem. It’s listenable without ever getting under your skin. A few more like ‘College’ and ‘Figured It Out’, with their emotional weight and memorable choruses, and they’d be onto something.
