NPR First Listen has shared an early look at the album. Likened to First Aid Kit and The Staves, NPR distinguishes them from the pack.
“…they carve out a spot of their own, as they fill their second album with an appealing mix of swoony delicacy and punchy anthems. On I’m Alone, No You’re Not, sweetness and power aren’t mutually exclusive.
“Punctuated by peppy, remix-friendly songs of devotion (“Blood & Tears”) and resistance (“White Flag”), I’m Alone, No You’re Not finds the Oregon-bred sisters delving into luscious ballads (“I Don’t Mind”), spirited dance-pop (“SOS [Overboard]”) and songs that build to cavernously booming, kick-drum-intensive rock (the appropriately titled “Canyon”). Joseph may have gotten its start playing living-room shows, but these songs are more than sturdy enough to support the layers of studio polish they get here.”
The Portland-based band has already been named a 2016 Spotify Spotlight artist. They will be touring the US through the end of October with several performances already sold out. In November, they’ll begin their European tour along with Michael Kiwanuka.
