The Tower and The Fool’s full-lrngth debut How Long is a dark, moody, and somber mix of
Americana, power pop, and
emo (think Wilco meets Gin Blossoms meets Dashboard Confessional). The songs are layered with subtle guitar
work, elegant piano and organ playing, and passionately sad vocals. In fact what makes this record work is the
very controlled way in which it is played.
These songs need to be mellow and the band never just lets go, keeping
everything measured with the perfect amount of playing to hit the desired
emotional level and not one note more.
The Tower and The Fool is obviously a very talented and passionate band
with a bright future ahead of them.
Thanks to Late Night Sing-Alongs for the find.
