iTunes Editors’ Notes

Release the Sunbird is a solo project by Rogue Wave frontman Zach Rogue. Featuring many of the same qualities found in the band’s best work (especially understated hooks and hummable melodies) several of these songs — “A New You,” “Everytime You Go,” and “Dropout”— sound like mellow acoustic demos Rogue might have introduced to the band had he wanted a fuller treatment. Yet it’s this relaxed, stripped-down approach that gives Come Back to Us its charm and distinctive quality. His voice is often whisper soft as he lightly strums or fingerpicks an acoustic guitar, backed by soft percussion and some hazy and subdued production touches. He’s backed here by drummer Pete Schreiner, bassist Kenny Childers, and special ingredient Kate Long who contributes gorgeous backing vocals across the album, but who positively shines on the title track, “Always Like the Son,” “Why Can’t You Look At Yourself,” and “Paper Allies.” Rogue Wave loyalists will enjoy Come Back to Us as will fans of well-crafted, low-key indie rock in general.

Customer Reviews

What I've been waiting for

I thought that when Rogue Wave joined Brushfire Records, it would be a beautiful merger and the song "Eyes" raised my expectations of what the band could accomplish. I was, however, let down by the last album because it was too over produced and such a departure from their earlier work. This debut from Release The Sunbird is exactly what I wanted Zach Rogue to produce after joining Brushfire and it doesn't disappoint. If you are a fan of early Rogue Wave or Jack Johnson, then you will definitely enjoy this album.

Zach's Back. FInally.

After everything that went down in 2007 with Rogue Wave's band members, many felt as if "Permalight" was not only a forced comeback album, but disappointing as well. Personally, I thought "Permalight" was a very good album. There's nothing wrong with a band experimenting with their sound, and that's where I became frustrated with those fans of the band that were angry with the change. But Zach's new project, Release the Sunbird, brings us back to Rogue Wave's roots with just a softer touch. It's a beautiful album with a great sound. You won't regret buying it.

Wow!

What a great jewel of an album. After what all that has happenend to Rogue Wave, it's great to hear Zach back and better than ever.
