Rock Alternative Pop Power Pop Playing out of Seattle - Recording debut full-length album. Full of craft-full melodies and feel good harmonies set to driven guitars .... and other catchy stuff.
Ransom and the Subset has a show on 07/03/2015 at 08:00 PM @ The Crocodile in Seattle, WA http://t.co/dL79qWcPkq #concert
“4.5 of 5 stars. Ransom delivers terrific dynamics, hooks, harmonies, and deep emotion.”
“One of the the slickest debut records I've heard.... Each song is finely crafted rock...But its not about arbitrary genre definitions, its about the music… and the music is very good....this is a solid debut with more than enough gems demanding repeat listens”
“The Seattle-based band Ransom and the Subset are so good; they harmonize, they rock, they smooth and groove. You - or at least I - could listen to them all day. Each song is a sophisticated work of craftsmanship and art, but at the same time just fun. Too bad they are based in Seattle, where I can't see them every week live...”
“'No Time to Lose' is readymade to connect with lovers of feelgood sounds everywhere....these tunes are on par with many great pop rockers from the 90s and beyond...with this release, lovers of Fountains of Wayne, OranJuly, and Silver Sun may find themself a new favourite band.”
“Opening with a red-herring melody and arrangement that sounds straight out of Pet Sounds, this album quickly detours into shimmering powerpop territory...Most of the tunes rock forcefully, but never at the expense of nuance and melody. The crystalline production values allow the individual instruments to shine, and the propulsive melodies equally emphasize the beat and Porter’s lyrics... There’s a whiff of Fountains of Wayne in Porter’s compositional approach; it’s most evident on “Leaving With You.” Great stuff.”
