I reviewed the new Tweak Bird album, Any Ol’ Way, for Last Rites:
It’s not just the tighter focus that sets Any Ol’ Way apart from their prior releases. Tweak Bird has typically employed the near constant high and tight harmony falsettos of the brothers; this time around, the twinned vocals rarely soar together into the upper part of their range. Either Ashton, Caleb, or both are most often in their lower register, which grounds the songs without anchoring them. When they choose to rise high the effect is greater for it isn’t the baseline sound. In addition, by more often separating their voices into high and low, the harmonies are stronger and easier to discern. The change is welcome.
