Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 

[POP] Although The Fray's most recent album, this year’s Helios, begins with the same bright piano pop-rock that gained the group attention back in 2005, the similarity to its debut ends there. The quartet has shifted its sound to sweeping arena pop, complete with anthemic gang vocals, heavily-distorted guitar and light spots of synth. “Give It Away” sounds like a groovy Michael Jackson homage, while single “Love Don’t Die” introduces guitar twang and raspy vocals to the group’s discography. It’s undeniably catchy, yes, and one can’t fault the band for growing into a new sound over the years. But where did the piano go?
