With 2019’s Heavy Age, Unwed Sailor released its loudest, darkest, and perhaps
poppiest, release yet. Bolstered by the guitar touches of Dave Swatzell and two
drummers, longtime member Matt Putman and Colin Blanton, the album finds
Ford layering bass and keyboards to expand on Unwed Sailor’s already wide
sonic range. Opener “Indian Paintbrush” blends psychedelic guitars with
swooning new wave synths; “ACAXAO” recalls the lushness of the Cure.
Meanwhile, songs like “Jealous Heart,” “Disintegrate,” and closer “When You
Want Me There” throb with distortion—these are among the heaviest songs
Unwed Sailor’s ever committed to record.
