There’s strength in Conor O’Brien’s voice. His subdued Irish bellow takes center stage on the majority of {Awayland} and does its best to find melody lines to twist around the steady yet often chaotic instrumentation provided. It's a complicated album both in sound and emotional vulnerability, yet there lacks an absolute depravity of heart and mind—{Awayland} tends to feel without reason or necessity, as if thrown together more in effort to get something down than to say something that needed saying.
