With their sophomore release Through the Wires seems to be moving in a new direction. This concept album - Blue Skies - finds itself wrestling with more mature themes than TTW's earlier work. From Remember Me to Graveside, listener's get a taste of the trials of human existence through the eyes of a mother and the voice of child. The music on the album ranges from the signature acoustic/string/piano melodies and vocal harmonies that Through the Wires is loved for, to songs that simply rock. Borrowing The Art of Abandoment's Ben Wise on the drums, strapping on electric guitars, and even dabbling in electronics, Blue Skies boasts a wealth of creative flair that captivates from beginning to end and promises much for the future of this young talent.
