About Last Night

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
When Kentucky-based rockers Sleeper Agent emerged in 2011 with their debut, Celabrasion, they sported a scrappy sound full of pop-punk hookiness clothed in lo-fi garage production. It was a sound that worked for the six-piece band, lending some character to its songs, which seemed to pack a lot of ideas into short three-minute bursts. Three years and many tours later, the band returns with its major-label follow-up, 2014's About Last Night. Working again with producer Jay Joyce the Wallflowers, Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent, led by frontwoman Alex Kandel, still pack a lot of pop punch but with softer edges, cleaner arrangements, and wholly more modern production ...

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
When Kentucky-based rockers Sleeper Agent emerged in 2011 with their debut, Celabrasion, they sported a scrappy sound full of pop-punk hookiness clothed in lo-fi garage production. It was a sound that worked for the six-piece band, lending some character to its songs, which seemed to pack a lot of ideas into short three-minute bursts. Three years and many tours later, the band returns with its major-label follow-up, 2014's About Last Night. Working again with producer Jay Joyce the Wallflowers, Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent, led by frontwoman Alex Kandel, still pack a lot of pop punch but with softer edges, cleaner arrangements, and wholly more modern production values, making for a more diverse second effort. Lead single "Waves" sparkles with melody in the grand singalong style of more folk-based contemporaries like Of Monsters and Men. Likewise, tracks like "Take It Off" amp up the band's more mainstream pop-punk elements. While About Last Night seems to bounce around from style to style, there are certainly some unique results from this experimentation. The mostly acoustic closer, "Sweetheart," is an unexpected Latin-influenced pop song with stacked harmonies, and the excellent "Impressed" harks back to the melodic punk of their first album. About Last Night shows that Sleeper Agent have melodies and ideas to spare, and the album's more mainstream approach shows their willingness to evolve.
