EDITORS’ NOTES

A polished country pop bombardment awaits on this breakthrough from British duo The Shires. Building on their debut Brave, Chrissie Rhodes and Ben Earle’s second record goes all in on firecracker choruses and yearningly tender duets. “Naked” is a fittingly unvarnished ballad and in the face of “Not Even Drunk Right Now”—an 80 proof whirl of half-yodelled harmonies and intoxicating Nashville melodies—resistance is utterly futile.
