All The Houses Look The Same is art and pop; it is a scene of lullaby piano and melodic vocal lines painted against a background of indie rock. Deas Vail combines catchy chourses and ethereal guitars to produce an atmospheric, brit-rock sound on thirteen tracks including "Light As Air," "Shadows and City Light," "Anything You Say," and more.
Beautiful, fragile melodies mark stunning debut
Expect this to be the first in a long line of such releases. After all, the first musical waves of a generation raised on Coldplay and the like are finally washing ashore, trained to release similarly epic anthems.
Last year, the band Leeland found itself the recipient of overt praise for such a beautiful debut. Now, Deas Vail is positioned to receive the same. Haunting, piano-driven melodies can be found throughout All the Houses Look the Same, the full-length debut for the Arkansas quintet. Songs such as For Miles to Come and Still showcase somber, fragile sensibilities, i.e. Aqualung and Eisley.
But ultimately, Deas Vail rises and falls with front man Wes Blaylocks yearning delivery. The classically trained vocalist shines on a standout record, and his falsetto is simply stunning, especially on Light As Air where Blaylock effortlessly moves between octaves.
With Blaylocks emotional vocal combined with the heart-on-your-sleeve musicianship, Deas Vail and producer Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, The Evan Anthem) have perhaps crafted the strongest debut of 2007.
