Our Own House is the debut album of MisterWives.
MisterWives is an American indie-pop band that is based in New York City, NY. Although this is their debut album, they have released their EP Reflections in 2014, which contained 6 tracks including the title track. Although they are new to the pop music scene, they have great potential.
The title song, Our Own House, is also the opening song on the album. It is the kind of song that makes you want to dance around and sing along. You can’t deny the upbeat tempo and saxophone in the background, which will put you in an instant good mood.
Reflections is one of the singles off of the album. It’s another toe-tapping song that makes you sway. It, along with Our Own House, help identify their pop sound.
Best I Can Do brings back the big band background music and upbeat tempo that makes me think of friends heading out on an awesome road trip. I want to dance to it, sing the lyrics, and enjoy quality time with my BFF because of this song.
Coffins brings out the more serious side of the band, with deeper and more thoughtful lyrics that will make you think, which I always find a plus. It’s musical poetry, as music should be.
Overall, Our Own House is an album that makes me think of summer nights and care-free days. It makes me want to dance and sing, but also think and relax. It’s easy listening qualities make it great for everyone.
