The Neverclaim  (Provident)

FOR FANS OF: The Lumineers, Third Day
Rating: 3 Stars

If you filtered modern worship choruses through the “Ho! Hey!” pop-folk movement, you might end up close to The Neverclaim’s self-titled debut. Traditional instrumentation is set alongside familiar poprock elements to varied effect on the Portland band’s first album. Some work (“Revival”), some don’t (“Sweet Sweet Mercies”), but there’s a solid enough foundation here to expect much more from this sextet.
