Editorial Reviews

Product Description

'Ternion', from the Latin for a group of three, sees We Have Band make a stylistic leap on from their debut 'WHB', which despite its critical acclaim the band were keen not to repeat. The result is a very different record, an intensely personal album that manages to be both uplifting and melancholic. Gone are the nonsense lyrics replaced by frank and honest accounts of their relationships, struggles to make sense of the world around them and the effect, both physical and emotional, of a life on the road.

Review

The first album was really digital, chopped up and quick, and those things are all quite urban. You can listen to it and pin down when it was recorded and what scene it was part of, but with this record we've moved away from that sound. There's a lot of warmth in the band and that comes through in this record. --Thomas Wegg-Prosser

Format: Audio CD
The second full-length album of this Manchester, UK trio has We Have Band really coming into their own. Yes, they still have an ethereal Dream Academy-like sound. But it's clearly an inspiration, not an imitation.

There's an underlying urgency to We Have Band's material that sets them apart from that earlier group. That and a natural ability to write pop tunes that are attractive without being trite.

While still relying primarily on the transparent vocals of Darren Bancroft and Dede Wegg-Prosser (husband Thomas plays guitar and adds harmony), WHB's sound can move from softly-focused to tight and crisp when it needs to.

The opening track "Pressure On" may be dreamy with half-formed melodies floating over impressionistic electronics, but the next track "Rivers of Blood" will have you up on the dance floor (think Soft Cell meets salsa). And those horns on "Visionary" really make that mid-tempo song groove.

Ten songs of intelligent pop by a trio that plays -- and harmonizes -- well together. "Ternion" means a group of three. We Have Band is just that. And a darned good one, too. If you like the music on BBC Radio One Extra, check out We Have Band.

'Ternion' was my first introduction to We Have Band. I had no idea what to expect and I was not disappointed with what I heard. There's a certain driving force that's present throughout this album though it does die down a bit in the second half. Otherwise, it's nearly impossible to sit still, even if it's just a toe tap or a head nod. Perfect for a road trip or an after dinner party impromptu dance party. I don't know what genre in which to categorize We Have Band, but it doesn't much matter. They've gained a fan and I'm looking forward to discovering more of what they have to offer.
