Very Emergency

Time breeds sophistication, and as the THE PROMISE RING usher in over half a decade as a band – no small feat in an industry of quick burnouts, mind you – they also bring a new noise. Using a wide palette of inspiration that renders depth and revelation to the band’s already distinguished character, Very Emergency (JT1043) finally delivers on what previous recordings have only hinted at – namely, a deepening appreciation for songcraft and the realization that a great pop record can be both simple and smart.
