Isenheart lists one of their two major influences as Dashboard Confessional, but don't be fooled! This band doesn't need the dashing hair styles of Chris Carrabba to be successful; if they stay on the right path, you'll be hearing a lot more about Isenheart just the way they are.
Isenheart does borrow from their main two influences -- Dashboard and Death Cab -- but they leave it at borrowing and do an excellent job creating their own sound. With that comes a cheerier, livelier sound that if given the chance, will entertain audiences far outside of their hometown of Spokane. Each of Isenheat's tracks is unique, whether it be the wide range of vocals or memorable instrumental lines.
I'm really drawing a blank as to what else to say. And I know this review may feel kind of vague, but this is probably a good thing, because it's always easier to critique than compliment, and there's really not much to criticize with this album. Every once in awhile there comes a band that I don't fear recommending to people, no matter their musical taste. With the exception of hardcore metal and rap fans, Isenheart fits that bill.
It's just good music.
Get lost in it.
Tracks to listen to: "As We Go" and "Hide and Seek."
