Amoeba Review

12/02/2013

Though he rose to prominence with 2006’s duets film Once, Glen Hansard has since proven himself an intriguing singer-songwriter in his own right. His latest, the Drive All Night EP, is a sumptuous set of songs featuring Hansard’s lovably gruff voice, acoustic guitar, standup bass and tasteful touches like horns and light piano. On the title track, a cover of the Bruce Springsteen original and live favorite of Hansard’s, his impassioned voice sends home Springsteen’s lyrics of tempestuous yearning, with saxophone hitting the point home and lovely backup vocals from Eddie Vedder and Jake Clemons. A single violin and female backup vocals help land the heartbreak in “Renata”—the line “I might not have what it takes to be your man” is particularly effective. Though only four songs long, the Drive All Night EP makes its presence felt, particularly in its closer, the gorgeous, a capella “Step Out of the Shadows.” It’s a hearty holdover until Hansard graces us with his next full-length offering.
