Amoeba Review

On Sea Wolf’s breakthrough song “You’re a Wolf,” Alex Brown Church was running, seemingly away from someone, or unable to reach someone. On the opener, “Old Friend,” of his latest album, Church sings of such youthful drama as a thing of the past — “I went north, and I went east/Follow in the footsteps of some beautiful beast/But now we’re getting older and we’re growing up.” Old World Romance finds Church singing about relationships in similar turmoil, though with the grace gleaned by age, rolling nostalgic melodies over lush instrumentation. Its spell of morose reflection is somehow infectious to inhabit, even as the emotions behind songs like “In Nothing” (“You lived in each other/Keep looking for something in nothing,” goes the refrain) seem bleak. Church seems to know relationships always involve some measure of trauma, and only offers dry reprieve — “I feel the darkness at my back/That’s why I’m always rearranging/And looking forward to the season changing” he sings on “Changing Seasons.” Though it’s a bummer, Old World Romance knows its subject well, and through Church’s lovely melodies, its take on heartache rings true.
