Good Luck, Kid (ATO)

Sunday ACL Fest 2019 Record Reviews

The bright harmonies of Portland, Oregon's Closner sisters expands into explosive pop territory with their third LP. From the outset with "Fighter," the percussive bombast and racing rhythms signal a break from previous folk-tuned predictability. The result is dramatic and impressive. Good Luck, Kid bursts between determined defiance ("In My Head") and surrendering ecstasy ("Without You," "Side Effects"), at times reaching toward the soaring impact of Florence & the Machine. Softer moment "Revolving Door" and rallying closer "Room for You" strike with the tender, anthemic emotional punch of Brandi Carlile. (Sunday, 2pm, American Express stage)
