12 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ireland’s Walking On cars understand the dynamics of "big" music. Their songs contain enough melodic peaks, dramatic pauses and universal emotions to reach arena rafters and the far horizons of festival fields. The five-piece claim to argue a lot while writing but it’s striking how intuitively the spiralling riffs and mournful piano lines of their pop-rock tesselate with the stirring harmonies and tense drums. At its best—“Speeding Cars” and “Two Stones ”—Everything This Way has a craft to match its ambition.
