Eighteen years after his first album, the Suburban Kid is all grown up, but he remains a masterful proponent of classic pop songwriting and the result still sounds like one big hug.
Opening cut Born Yesterday is a wistful, nostalgic piece but with a hook that’ll have you humming all day; Stella Donnelly adds some backing vocals beauty to the power pop gem Concrete Heart; Elvis Costello would be proud of the punchy Excuses; and only Bob Evans could turn a song called Bad Mood into a sparkling pop treat. A welcome return.
Tomorrowland by Bob Evans is out April 16 via Dew Process.
