The folky Seattle band's third album!

Sunny pop tendencies mark Signs of Light

"Lead single 'All We Ever Knew' has that la-la-la refrain used so often these days that you'd be a millionaire if you could copyright it, but 'City of Angels' easily captures that bright Southern Cali vibe which still attracts so many people hoping to realize their dreams." — Washington Post

Recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), Signs Of Light crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of the Head And The Heart's finest work. The lead single "All We Ever Knew," which was written during the "Let's Be Still" era but never captured to the band's satisfaction until now, is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, while "Turn It Around" seems primed to be a future concert staple, matching its inspirational message with a lush and multi-layered soundscape.

On Signs Of Light, that gamut of emotions is felt most deeply on the Josiah Johnson-penned title track, which none of the other members had ever heard until they happened to walk in on him playing it over and over at the piano during pre-production in El Paso, Texas. "It was one of those moments where no one talks," Russell remembers. "No one needs the chords; no one is looking up. You simply pick up your instrument and play. The next thing you know, nearly 10 minutes have gone by and you have no idea how or why or what just happened."
