Gamble House reminds The Islander a lot of Department Of Eagles. They both have punchy interludes and pretty vocals. Where Gamble House strays away from this comparison is that their sound is much bigger. Everything about their sound is large, making use of the entire frequency range and radical dynamic fluctuation. The band uses reverb perfectly, and it accents their sound by adding sustain to some of the choppier guitar parts and blends the vocals into the instrumentation. Bonny Doon starts with a beautiful guitar and vocal into, and twenty seconds in, the song slowly emerges. By the end, one can’t help but hit repeat.
