Review: Made of Matches is a brand new album from The House United. The band officially hails from Nashville, TN, but it's members come from all over the USA, Alaska to Maryland. Including a female vocalist from Slovakia.
"You could be my Alice... and I'll show you wonderland tonight"
The album's title track "Made of Matches" is a dark & grisly tune with a bar-room rockabilly vibe while "Falling" features a hypnotic ska/reggae riff through it's verses. "Come Back Home" slows things down with a piano pop ballad while "Who Am I" is a soft, yet inspirational anthem to close things out with.
Our Score: 8.5/10 - A solid pop-rock album that varies in sound enough to stay interesting while still maintaining the overall feel. Clocking in at a healthy 53 minutes, The House United will give you your money's worth with Made of Matches!
