The Pass: Canyons
Identifying what you do well as a band and delivering it in a straightforward and sincere way seems to be a solid method to build an album, and that’s what The Pass does well with their third full-length record, Cayons. With bouncy synths, funky guitars and steady drums, The Pass gets right to their upbeat ’80s-inspired pop-rock that blends danceable aesthetics with emotionally-driven peaks and valleys. The album doesn’t take many chances or veer off script, but it all changes just enough with their ability to create a big, catchy and dramatic soundscape. “Silent Treatment” and “Mexico” give you exactly what you want from The Pass, but the entirety of Canyons is a cohesive product that never slows down.
