New Sincerity Works Captures An Adventurous Spirit With New Album “Wonder Lust”
New Sincerity Works is a daring band hailing from Cincinnati that creates music with a truly kaleidoscopic quality. In their newest album Wonder Lust, the daring quartet showcases their considerable musical acumen and creative vision. Within their music, New Sincerity Works play a familiar style of Alt-Rock tinged with psychedelic notes. Drawing on obvious influences from The New Pornographers and Spoon, their sound is frantic, at times even histrionic.Twanging, reverb-heavy interludes cut the tension between episodes of frenzied screams and rapid-fire, fuzzed out riffs.
Throughout Wonder Lust, listeners can feel the tendrils of adventure and self-reflection tugging on their heart. The ten tracks present on this deeply emotive LP are all daring and well executed. Familiar and foreign all at once, Wonder Lust truly captures a curious sonic energy.
These ten songs tell the stories of hearts, lips, Kentucky on Ohio, and the comings and goings of the luster, lore, and lure of love and lust. New Sincerity Works frontman Mike Tittel opened up on the development latest release saying: “I wrote the songs to accompany a book of personal photographs. The book never happened but I did get a record out of the whole project. I liked the idea of trying to describe what falling in and out of love is like and what happens in between those extreme modes of living. It’s a record about love but not really love songs.”
Songs like “Midwest Reverie,” “The Company We Keep,” “To Be Kissed Like That,” and “Hearts Transplanted” give Wonder Lust a beautifully timeless quality while edgier tunes like “Just Like Vapor” and the title track “Wonder Lust” add a prominent renegade spirit to the record. Dark synthesizer accent groovy instrumentation and infectious vocals throughout this bountiful ten track romp through life and love.
