The Bigger Lights are a typical example of a band that, at first, seem to be the "new sensation" but, after only a few plays, you realize that their songs are overly teen oriented, sickly and lacking of any substance.
The happy power pop offered by these five young musicians is banal and simplistic though, to be honest, some refrain are ok.
They are young, but not adolescents: this leads us to be less indulgent in judging them. Let's hope that there is still a margin of growth and that the guys succeed to find the right mix of teen pop and a more mature sound.
