On April 16, The Summer Set finally released their long awaited album “Legendary” and it’s already getting a lot of great publicity. Having listened to the album on repeat all day, I can honestly say you’re going to want to check this one out.
I’ve been a fan of the Summer Set since I was in high school a few years ago. They won me over with their hit single “Chelsea,” written about former Disney Channels tar Chelsea Kane. The song made me wish my name was Chelsea and it also made me curious as to who the band was, making me want to listen to more songs.
While I’ve loved all of their songs and albums so far, I’m definitely going to have to say that this new album is my favorite. “Legendary” features twelve new songs and each one is memorable and really good. Often at times, albums have two or three songs that just aren’t up to par with the rest, but I don’t believe that’s the case with this album. I can honestly say that I love every single song, which is a bit rare for me.
The first single off of the album is called “Maybe Tonight.” In February the band posted a music video for the song, which featured a bunch of people going out at night and spraying graffiti across town and on pieces of paper. But their little illustrations aren’t harmful, in fact they’re all good advice and motivational tips like, “be legendary.” I really like the overall feel of this song. It portrays the message of going out and doing what you want and have a good time.
Another song that has that kind of a feel to it, is their song “Lightning In A Bottle.” This song is definitely going to be an anthem for this summer. It just has that no regrets, no cares feel to it. It totally has gotten me pumped for sleepless, summer nights. I also like how the lyric video features the band themselves just having a fun time and genuinely enjoying themselves.
If I had to pick a favorite song off the album, it would be “Heart On The Floor,” which features Dia Frampton. This song is a little bit slower than the other ones, but it still has that upbeat tempo that everyone loves about The Summer Set. I think that this song is genuinely just adorable and it truly makes me smile. Plus, lead singer Brian Dales sounds amazing in it. His voice accented with Dia Frampton’s is really nice to listen to.
Overall, I think this is the best album yet from The Summer Set. Each song tells a story and each song is different in it’s own way. I would recommend this record to absolutely anyone.
