Harder, more mature songwriting on Glasgow duo's second album
(We Can Still Picnic)
An improvement from their first album You Can't Change That Boy in 2009, Wake the President have taken a harder, more mature songwriting approach on new album Zumutung!. Twin brothers hailing from Glasgow, Erik and Björn Sandberg, who also run the Say Dirty record label, reach a new level of emotional depth, taking them away from the stereotype of being just another indie-pop band. Early tracks on the album show off the band's talent for creating bouncy melodies and catchy lyrics, but as you listen on, the album takes a darker turn. 'E.T' has an infectious, slightly sinister style. An promising insight to what they might produce in the future.
