Hi-Res
All Things Go: the title of this album by the Berlin-based band (that is nevertheless cosmopolitan) above all shows a shift in aesthetic for American Ian Hooper, the Italian Claudio Donzelli and the Brit Craig Saunders. All things go… everything is transient. The trio distances itself from the folk which originally brought them success (notably in 2014 with Howl), instead directing themselves towards a more poppy sound. Beyond this change of style, the members of Mighty Oaks wanted to show the importance leaving your comfort zone, whatever that may be, to explore and conquer new horizons. In other words, they are making pop music to put across a message that is, paradoxically, rather different to the image associated with this light and airy genre. Just like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen (two of Hooper’s idols), the songs of the album express intense and/or painful life experiences, like friendship (Tell Me What You’re Thinking) and anxiety, whether it be linked to the past (Lost Again) or the uncertain future (Forget Tomorrow). The lead singer’s loss of his mother, which he has learned to accept with time, is also touched upon in the title track (All Things Go). Sometimes, it’s life itself which pulls us from the safety nets that we build ourselves, leaving us with no choice but to fall into an unknown which can end up making you smile (Fly To You). This is the keystone of an album which covers serious topics with a lightweight spirit. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
