HBO sure knows how to pick out great songs for the show openings.
Case in point being the fourth season of Big Love (click on Wikipedia on what the show is about).
For those that want to know, my favorite character has to be Nicki (played by Chloë Sevigny) because that character is out of the norm, uptight Mormon and has the funniest/weirdest lines.
This season they changed the opening theme song from The Beach Boys’s “God Only Know” to Engineers “Home”.
So I decided to check out the British band’s 2005 debut album.
Maybe not alot of people may have heard of this band.
Besides Home which I have heard over and over by watching the opening theme.
The whole album has that melancholy dreamy pop sound and some British indie rock.
Very reminisced to The Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel (When I think of the song “The Only Living Boy in New York”)
It has that 1960s rock-pop sound influence.
- Waved On
- Let’s Just See
- How Do You Say Goodbye?
Overall I like this album.
At the moment I couldn’t find this album in normal music shops, so I had to purchase it on iTunes.
The album tends to be slow in certain parts for those not into the dreamy pop/post rock music.
Thanks to Big Love, it might get the band some notoriety with their music.
