A crazy game called love is what’s being played in New York City by an independent rock quartet called Hooray for Earth. This intense quartet sings sense tingling songs about the trials and tribulations of romance while sounding similar to Depeche Mode. With weeping vocals and sizzling alternative rock melodies, listeners will absolutely get goose bumps.
Racy features nine ambient and heart wrenching tracks. The romantic journey begins with the first track “Hey” and its soulful vocals and silky, smooth melodies. The album gets a little rough with the second track “Keys”, featuring a sultry sound that brings out the nervous tension in the track. Racy turns into sadness with “Say Enough.” It’s a heartbreaking tale that blends so well with the rest of the album. This entire story is worth a listen all the way through, beginning to end, no stopping.
Hooray For Earth is a great group who sings emotionally heartfelt songs with passionate melodies and lyrics that will stir the human spirit.
