CD Review: The O's Let Loose The Folk-Rock Of "Thunderdog"

From Dallas, TX comes the country/folk/rock band The O’s with their third studio album, “Thunderdog.” The album will be released on July 23 through the band’s own record label, Punch Five Records and carries a sound that is heard all over today's radio by Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers and The Lumineers.

The twelve-song album starts off with the old west sounds of “Outlaw” as The O’s slowly build up their music and mainly rely on their harmonies. They hit the perfect combination for a pop radio hit with “Dallas,” then show-off their songwriting skills on “You Are The Light.” The O’s head out to the country for the twangy sounds of “Cicerone,” before returning to the familiar, storied folk-telling of “Levee Breaks.” The band could easily been mistaken for The Wallflowers on “Lighten The Load” and on the album closer “Kitty.”

The O’s are currently touring their new music around the state of Texas. For more information on the band, please visit their website at wearetheos.com.
