Writing remarks about how solid and smart the synth pop/rock compositions are on Tenth Avenue North’s new album, Followers (buy), feels like a pointless exercise. Rather, the point has already been made so often, on each of the band’s previous four albums. Followers features Mike Donehey’s killer vocal work on honest, relatable lyrics paired with the aforementioned strong songwriting. If that makes Tenth Ave sound like one of the most dependable bands in the industry, it’s because they are. From the pulsing “What You Want” to The Fray-like “Sparrow (Under Heaven’s Eyes),” there’s plenty here to appreciate and absorb for the faith journey forward.
