The Lathums : From Nothing To A Little Bit More Review
The Lathums is the name of a British four-piece rock band that believes in making heartfelt music with a strong emphasis on songwriting and melodic flow. The Lathums is swelled with self-assured positivity as they release their sophomore album, From Nothing To A Little Bit More. The Lathums are Alex Moore (vocals), Scott Concepcion (guitars/piano), Matty Murphy (bass), and Ryan Durrans (drums).
“Struggle” begins our journey to a little bit more with a catchy melody and lyrics that set the tone for the entire project. The use of piano and crunchy guitar is a nice touch and gives a sonic variance. The lyrics throughout the album deal with grief, break-ups, and loss of innocence, but all are framed with a degree of hope. Moore explains, “Some of the best songwriters have been very sad, strange people. And I believe I’m one of those sad, strange people, unfortunately.”
“Say My Name” is a fan favorite and was released as a single along with “Turmoil” and “Sad Face Baby.” “Say My Name” is undoubtedly the best song on the album, with its catchy beat and driving guitar. The drums rumble under the chorus as the guitar adds character. Moore has a more aggressive vocal stance on this selection and shows he has a wide range to boot.
From Nothing To A Little Bit More is nineteen songs for us to peruse and gather the ones that speak to us. The Lathums have a full sound, and the material is well-written. If you enjoy indie rock sounds, you will definitely find a couple of songs to add to your playlist.
