To The Wind - ‘The Brighter View’ Cover

When taking risks pays off.

It seems To The Wind have given themselves a bit of a facelift. Where ’14’s ‘Block Out The Sun & Sleep’ was a bludgeoning tour-de-force from start to finish, ‘The Brighter View’ slows things down a tad and is all the better for it.

That’s not to say ‘Exposed’ and ‘Only Way’ aren’t rippling with angst-ridden heaviness, but it’s with the melodious edges of the title track and ‘Temporary Escape’ that the band sound their freshest.

With ‘The Brighter View’, To The Wind have taken a step back, reassessed and produced their most complete and accomplished album to date.
