Album Notes

On their sophomore album, 2016's Perspective, Britain's Lawson offer up a pleasant brand of adult contemporary pop. Centered around lead singer/guitarist Andy Brown, Lawson debuted in 2012 with Chapman Square. Working in Nashville with producer John Fields (Switchfoot, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers), Lawson have crafted an album that will draw in plenty of ears. Lead singer Brown has a pleasantly warm and yearning voice that often endearingly sways into a Liverpudlian lilt. It's a sound the band puts to good use on the Bruno Mars-esque "Money." Similarly, tracks like "Love & War" and "Only Water" showcase the band's knack for sincerely delivered romantic balladry. "We Are the Fire" borrows from the anthemic post-U2 playbook, while the dramatic "I Look Anyway" and club-ready dance-pop of "Rio" would fit nicely alongside similarly inclined tracks from Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, and Ireland's the Script. It's hard not to like a band whose members seem to really believe in what they are doing, so much so that Brown even incorporated a marriage proposal to his wife in the band's video for the single "Where My Love Goes." Ultimately, it's that kind of grand pop sincerity that lends depth to Lawson's Perspective. ~ Matt Collar
