After making their major-label breakthrough with L. DivineCold War Kids embarked on a project that was more ambitious and more spontaneous: New Age Norms, a trilogy of mini-albums that let them sharpen their songwriting and stretch out musically at the same time. On New Age - Various - War first volume, Cold War Kids and their longtime producer Lars Stalfors continue to challenge each other. Together, they consolidated L. Divine 's sound into a slick yet rootsy whole; this time, they use the album's eight songs to expand the band's range.
There are a few quintessentially Cold War Kids Hear The Earth - Trouble - Plastic Green Head here, including "4th of July," a piano-driven showcase for Nathan Willett 's falsetto that sounds almost as warm as its namesake, and "Calm Your Nerves," the kind of rousing ballad that shows why Magic Rocking Horse - Plasticland - Plasticland remains such a big influence on their music.
For most of New Age Norms, Vol. On "Fine Fine Fine," the band underscores the sentiment "I don't want to be young again" with the strummy guitars of their early days and backing vocals straight from '60s soul. This reimagining of traditional sounds echoes the way Cold War Kids question stereotypes during a time of changing social mores on New Age Norms, Vol.
