Hope is a total lack of restraint, and a reckless use of force when it comes to fun and accessible melodies. You’ll be left wanting to go back again and again to learn the lyrics and sing along. The only question is how long that appeal will last. As with so many flashy and polished pieces, often the initial effect far outweighs the real underlying substance. For now, though, we’re just going to have to enjoy Hope for what it is: an insanely catchy record from an indie-pop juggernaut that has likely just set the standard for radio-friendly folk.
