Is There Anybody Out There?
A Great Big World may sound like a supergroup formed between Owl City and The Fray, but where the former believed in the power of God and the latter the power of a good TV placement, this duo seems to believe in just about everything else. Per their debut album, we live in a land of opportunities where you can fall in love with anyone and be anything you want, but mostly you should just be yourself -- the most relentlessly cheery version of that self you can muster. This is an album, in other words, filled almost entirely with songs promising that it will get better. Let's hope so.
