In this industry, every artist has to be concerned with the sophomore curse. Will their second project resonate with listeners as well as their first? Well, for The Band Perry, the wait is over. Pioneer, the follow up of their self-titled debut, smash record, delivers 12 new songs that are sure to resonate with their fans worldwide.
Pioneer, showcases the crystal clear vocals and harmony that only The Band Perry can deliver. This album, displays songs that are brave and bold, as well as the classic, emotion filled ballads that garnered them fans in the first place. The first single from Pioneer, “Better Dig Two” is a haunting melody with bold lyrics and amazing vocals, which brings out a new gritty side of Kimberly’s voice, and sets the groundwork for the rest of the album.
The second single “DONE.” is a far cry from a “Love Song”. This song is about being fed up in a relationship. The song has an upbeat, catchy melody and lyrics that fans will love singing along to. Kimberly Perry sings with passionate, strong vocals, and an equally strong attitude on this cut. This song is sure to be a fan favorite! While this album has strong up-tempo songs, the Band Perry also gives us the very heartfelt songs that they do so well. “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”, “Back To Me Without You” and “End Of Time” are ballads about love and loss. The Band Perry has a unique way of letting you hear the heartache in their voices and songs that not many other artists’ can deliver, which is what makes these songs so special.
The Band Perry has given us an album with songs filled with love, conviction, and every emotion known to man or woman. There are songs to sing along to, and songs to cry along with. This album is sure to have major success and be a fan favorite. I don’t think they need to worry about the “Sophomore Curse” with this album. The Band Perry is here to stay!
