Biography

“When you write about relationships, you can’t do it halfway,” Blake confesses. “I think you really have to be fearless, and of course it's never easy."

The linear thinker versus the abstract thinker. The studio tinkerer versus the bedroom balladeer. Boy versus girl. You versus me. Us versus the world, set against a backdrop of pretty pictures and crazy ... Read more in Amazon's The Submarines Store

Editorial Reviews

The Submarines erase the border between indie pop and electronica-lite on Love Notes/Letter Bombs, the couple's third collection of tortured, peppy love songs. Having shared frontman duties on their 2006 debut, the two have settled into their individual roles by now, with Blake Hazard serving as lead vocalist and husband John Dragonetti -- who composes music for commercials and television shows during the band's downtime -- taking responsibility for most of the instrumentation. Dragonetti's experience with TV music has influenced the band before, with two cuts from the sophomore effort Honeysuckle Weeks winding up in iPhone commercials soon after the album's release. The songs on Love Notes/Letter Bombs are similarly jingle-worthy, and Dragonetti explores some interesting territory throughout the album, combining synthesizers and tweaked, computerized sounds with the organic hum of acoustic guitars and handclaps.


This vinyl edition of Love Notes/Letter Bombs, originally released as a Record Store Day 2011 exclusive, is now available here for a limited time while supplies last!

As good as their first two CD's were, this is even better, and those were fantastic. Melodies that absolutely do not miss, crisp vocals, a nice punchy indie beat and lyrics that really work, if maybe just a tad too lovey, I cannot find a flaw anywhere. Some people just have music built in them, and these two have been killing since they started. By all means check it out.

Track by Track review:

1. Shoelaces - This track has some very well-written lyrics. However, the thumping, distorted bass deter the song. 3/5

2. Fire - Awesome intro. The Synth playing the melody after the intro is annoying as well as the hip-hop style thumps. Thankfully, these sound effects really do not come back into the song. 4/5

3. Ivaloo - The chord progression is great in this song; probably the best The Submarines have ever done. The vocal melodies, instrumental melodies, lyrics, and the bridge are all superb. 5/5

4. The Sun Shines At Night - One of the best songs on the album. The chorus is catchy and the shoegaze effects work well. The verses are very beautiful. 5/5

5. Birds - This is one of the weaker songs on the album. The monotonous beat and the lyrics are not very good. 2/5

6. Tigers - The lyrics and instrumentation are great on this song. 4/5

7. Where You Are - The broken chords in the chorus make up for the annoying synth in the beginning of each verse. 4/5

8. Plans - This is the worst song on the album. There are really no redeeming qualities to this one. The lyrics and chord progression are all uninspired. The fact that it was on Gray's Anatomy doesn't help. 1/5

9. A Satellite, Stars and an Ocean Behind You - This song has the catchiest melodies, and very sad lyrics. It reminds of Jonsi, which is probably why I like it so much. It's the best song on the album 5/5.

10. Anymore - A very sad song. Great verse and chorus. 5/5.

If some of the songs could've just not had some of those dumb, annoying sound effects, the album would've been much better. A 38/50 rounds out to 4 stars.

I describe these guys as simultaneously happy and relaxing. I can listen to them while doing pretty much anything and in any mood.

The songs are just so touching, and the music is very calming to listen to. My personal favorites are "The Sun Shines At Night" and "A Satellite, Stars, and an Ocean Behind You."

This band has quickly become one of my favorites. I was first introduced to their music through the movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Once I heard them it was gameover. This is actually the first CD of theirs that I bought and I love every-single-track on it. Top to bottom, one of the best CD's I own, and I will always be a fan of theirs because of it.
