With a release that is elegant in its use of contrast, El West shows that the band is a force to monitor. The vocals in “Rose Letter A” are sometimes light and ballad-like, but turn nearly operatically forceful during portions of the song, particularly the chorus. Similarly, the guitars fluctuate between having an alluring vulnerability and a forceful urgency. The percussion is more than willing to support the shifts.
