Maritime is a band composed of former members of The Promise Ring & The Dismemberment Plan, and they have proven to be just as prolific as those two bands now that they are on their fifth album. Mixes the golden 90’s-early 00’s era of emo with catchy power pop hooks. The lead single “Satellite Love” has a peppy beat similar to “Footloose” with a lead keyboard synth that stands out against their ordinarily guitar-based sound, while “Light You Up” has some really nice guitar work. While this album is not quite as consistent as their 2011 album Human Hearts, it is still very good and won’t disappoint if you’re a fan of Maritime’s previous work.
