CD Review: I Used To Be A Sparrow Are Now An "Empty Artist"

Swedish alternative, indie-rockers, I Used To Be A Sparrow will be releasing their sophomore album, “You Are An Empty Artist” on March 15 through Paper Wings Records. The duo of Dick Pettersson and Andrea Caccese are taking their garage band and making is sound like arena rock, similar to rock superstars Coldplay.
The album begins with “Laura” as you notice how much their sound has grown and developed since their debut album. The first single, “Warpaint On Invisible Children” plays heavy on the electronic beats, while “Spring Knows Where You Live” is a more U2-type rocker. The song “Submarine” sounds too much like a demo recording idea that never really takes off, while “On/Off” has a very mainstream, indie-rock appeal. The album finishes with the gentle flow of “July.”
