Avers’ Empty Light is what you get when you combine the talents of The Head and the Heart, Hypercolor, Mason Brothers, Farm Vegas, and The Trillions – you get an album that was slow cooked. Rather than the contributions from one of these bands standing out, the music contains a richness of all the components coming together, indistinguishable from the individual parts. The songs take their time, especially album standout “Empty Light”, a slow-building heartbreaker of a song.

Avers also makes trippy rock that’s reminiscent of Tame Impala’s Lonerism on some tracks. On others, like “Only One”, the band gets going with jangly guitars and experiments with fuzzy guitars. What’s best about Avers’ Early Light is how easy it would have been to rely on the big-name draw of The Head and the Heart and try to replicate the band’s sound and success. However, this album is an entirely different project, a full departure from the folky band, that experiments with rock and its various genres, whether that be just straight-up rock, psychedelic rock, or poppier-rock on “Harvest”. The album, to say the least, is a trip, and one well-worth taking.
