Fast Romantics are the vocals of the past with euphoric instrumentals. In their new album American Love, light melodies dance hand in hand with softly sung lyrics, exemplified in the opening track “Everybody’s Trying to Steal Your Heart.”
That is what the Fast Romantics do, they are the thieves of angst and the givers of serenity. The track “This is Why We Fight” brings an inspirational reminder wrapped in lyrical poetry:
“Every morning when I wake up/
I put a bullet in my coffee cup.”
American Love manages a calm rhythmic balance with the weight of wisdom. This pacing causes each word to attach onto the languished chords, leaving the message to stretch farther into time and embed in the subconscious of the listener.
Each track is a story, from “Alberta” to “Kids Without a Country.” This 12 song album builds to the wondrous ending “Heaven’s Alright,” my new life anthem.
The music industry needs the retro anchor of the early 70s, just as fans need the reminder to their melodic roots. That is is the gift of American Love.
