Easter Island offers a new album that is very somber and moody entitled Better Things. A follow-up to their Sneaking EP, the disc captures beautiful piano, guitar, bass, drums and lyrics, creating a delicately balanced collection of songs.

Produced by Five-Eight drummer Patrick Ferguson, straight from Athens, Ga.’s 1093 Boulevard Studio, the album sounds very stripped and raw, only demonstrating exactly what you’d expect from the band on stage, which is something very live and pure.

Check out “Proud,” “Into Bedrooms” and the title track for a taste of what they’ve dished up for this year.

Grade: B
