Longtime visitors to this site might remember that one of the first track-by-track reviews we did was of Karmin’s Pulses, which we didn’t like.  One of the reasons was because it sounded inauthentic; like they were trying to be someone else.  We wondered if they could do more than YouTube covers or had their single Hello, which showed promise, been a fluke.

Today we have an answer; it wasn’t.

The duo has released a new track called Along The Road with an accompanying visual.  While the video is simple, the song shows some of that promise that the two showed when we first saw them.  The vocals are good, the lyrics are strong, and the acoustic guitar-led production fits the mood.  If they can keep this up, their new album might have us listening again.

This is the first single from the duo’s upcoming second album, Leo Rising.
