Colony House – ‘Only The Lonely’ album review

Since their initial release When I Was Younger (2014) and big breakout on Tour de Compadres in 2015, Colony House—now a foursome with the addition of bassist Parke Cottrell—have been laying the foundation for new music and avoiding the sophomore slump. With a new year comes a second LP, and all indications are that Colony House will continue to build upon its ever-increasing reach. Returning with their familiar harrowing vocals (Caleb Chapman) and guitar-whiz work (Scott Mills), Only The Lonely will solidify the band and further entrench their residency on the mainstream stage. A la NEEDTOBREATHE’s mega-hit “Brother,” and eluding to a potential house divided among the Chapman brothers (yes, they’re Steven Curtis’ boys), we’ll just chalk up “You And I” and its companion video to a mere spoof or simple sibling rivalry satire—good (and hilarious) stuff, nonetheless.
