Unknown Mortal Orchestra – So Good At Being In Trouble

February 6, 2013

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have done what every band strives to do over their career, master a style. It’s obvious you are hearing UMO when you hear their muffled percussion, downplayed vocals, and soulful bass. But “So Good At Being In Trouble” demonstrates them at their best, or close to it. “So good at being in trouble/ So bad at being in love” is sung at a beautifully controlled falsetto and is really the heart of the song. Whether you label it as “indie R&B,” or “real R&B,” UMO have grown into a sophisticated, soulful band, with an album worth giving your time to.
