      We The Kings Season’s Greetings from the Sandbar S-Curve Records November 16th, 2018 Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist, Boston Rock Radio

      We The Kings

      Season’s Greetings from the Sandbar

      S-Curve Records

      November 16th, 2018

      Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist, Boston Rock Radio

       

       

      On their first-ever holiday album, beloved pop-rock quintet We The Kings put their Floridian sunshine-y spin on a handful of classic songs, and debut a new track, “One People,” celebrating unity and equality.

       

      True to the album’s title, its soft acoustic instrumentation and almost reggae-esque groove make this collection of Christmas songs sound as if they’re sent straight from the sandbar, with just the right touch of festivity. From the horns and “ooohs” in We The Kings’ rendition of “White Christmas,” to the rhythm infusion in the typically slow, mellow “Silent Night,” this album has all the right qualities to become the perfect soundtrack to the small moments of the season--walking downtown through the snow, or relaxing on a cozy night indoors. For that second option, there’s one track in particular you may want to play: Indie singer/songwriter Elena Coats, who’s collaborated with the band in the past, lends her voice to the classic duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

       

      The album ends with the beautiful, poignant acoustic ballad “There Is A Light.” The song’s sad-but-hopeful lyrics have that magical feeling that not only captures the spirit of the holidays, but has just become trademark for the band over the years. This little-known track was originally released in 2008 on the Secret Valentine EP, featuring a few more rarities from the original lineup.

       

      After over a decade, We The Kings are still going strong and show no signs of stopping anytime soon. This festive album follows the release of the band’s chart-topping sixth album, Six.
