Album Review: Life On Hold – The Outsider EP

For fans of: Mumford and Sons, Iron & Wine, The Decemberists, Rilo Kiley, Meg & Dia

When you’re a band that has gained a good following based on a trademark sound, deciding to go in a new direction is a big risk. While bands should be granted the creative license to create whatever they want, unfortunately, it’s not always that simple when you have fans to please.

It’s not that female-fronted bands don’t exist. In my local scene alone, I can name a bunch: Life on Hold, Defeo, Sincerely, The Management….the list goes on. Think back in time, too. Hole? Blondie?
