Scope. That is what Carney possesses that not many bands can get right. Consisting of brothers Reeve and Zane Carney, the band is just a little left of center. With their debut album, Mr. Green Vol. 1, Carney dives into a different genre with every track and yet somehow remains intact with their sound. They bop with the Cabaret-esque Amelie, infuse quiet blues on Think of You, and completely rock out on Love Me Chase Me. The latter being a slinky, sexy track with a kiss off lyric that is simple and not so sweet. (I don't want you baby/I don't need you lately/Girls I've got to let you go.) It is one their best tracks with slow burn then an avalanche of emotion.

Carney has such a cinematic quality to their music. It is epic in every sense of the word. Just take the nearly 8 minute Testify with its dirty guitar and cool vocals. Carney, in my mind, represent a new direction of rock music. One that doesn't fit their songs into an easily digestable 3 minute radio ready hit. Their songs take their time and the payoff is well worth the wait.
