Young in the City II is a brilliant album. The songs are unique in sound, and I have been captured by their sound after listening to them practically all weekend. The songs have been stuck ringing through my head since I’ve heard them for the first time. However, this album doesn’t have a lot of songs, only about 4.

Noah Gundersen is the lead singer, and he had joined the band about two years ago before their first album came out, Young In The City. They have been playing together since then.

Gundersen also had a solo career when he was younger. I like the band better though, because it has a more anthem sound which I enjoy more than more subtle music.

Likewise, the songs on this album are upbeat and different from Gundersen’s solo career. I would still categorize the music as indie. A couple of the songs are more loud and rock-influenced than others, but for the most part, they are mixed. The lyrics are mostly about romance and love.

“Have you seen my baby? She’s been around the world alone” song, “Annie.”

I love the faded sound of every song. The melody and voices sound as if they are moving in and out. They almost have a distant sound to them. They are unique and different from songs that I would normally listen to.

The lyrics to these songs are interesting because they aren’t typical. Even though the topic of love and relationships is cliché, these lyrics are unique to this band and don’t have the usual sound of most modern songs made about love and relationships.

“When it’s over, and it’s done. For the last time the lights go down. I’m sorry playin done playin stupid, we were only having fun” song, “Hurricane.”

Overall, I loved listening to this album and I would recommend it to anyone. It isn’t exactly for a particular group of people because the songs have different sounds to them, so I think that most people would enjoy them.
