Ben Wise returned to produce/engineer the follow-up and play guitar and bass. The resulting album "Sirens In Spades" truly shows Action Toolbelt at the top of its game. DESCRIPTION: On “Sirens In Spades,” New York's Action Toolbelt hammers together a variety of styles to build a fresh new sound. Welding new wave analog synths to straightforward rock, they will hit a familiar chord with life-long alternative music fans, yet appeal to a diverse fanbase. Driving guitars and passionate vocals interact with catchy melodies and infectious hooks in no-nonsense tracks that evoke the heyday of college radio, while the introspective lyrics and resourceful production reflect a grown man’s hard-won maturity.
First single “One More” presents smooth verses that segue into the explosively catchy chorus. Songs like “Touch & Go” and “Used to Be” engage the listener with an up-tempo attack of powerpop guitars, buzzy synth leads and roaring vocals. The catchy alt-rock edginess of “Last Inline” gives way to layers of strings and keys, while “Trip and Fall” closes the album by showcasing the band's softer side. The new Action Toolbelt is sharper, shinier and more powerful than ever. DSN Music is proud to showcase Action Toolbelt for download, featuring their most popular hits.
