Lincoln, Nebraska’s Eagle*Seagull channel the art-pop sensibilities of contemporaries like Wolf Parade and the Arcade Fire on their engaging, emotionally-wracked self-titled album. They’ve found an edge-of-desperation yelper in frontman Eli Mardock, and the rest of the band’s haunting instrumental grandeur ups the angst with aching and intense nuances. Though the video for lead-single “Photograph” is sepia-tinted, the song does its part to awaken listeners from a monochrome slumber into a world of Technicolor.
