Manuel The Band’s debut album ‘Room For Complication’ neatly balances pop-rock with unorthodox arrangements.

Manuel The Band’s easy-listening debut album ‘Room For Complication’ coasts by with arrangements that are unfamiliar without being alienating.

Watch 'Room for Complication' below!

With a whole lot of pedal steel guitar backing up their jazzy psychedelic-tinged rock the band journeys through the complications of love in a way that’s accessible and relatable. Manuel Grajeda channels his inner Dave Matthews as he sings about the perils of trying not to catch feelings in the upbeat ‘Casual Love’.

With its brass band backing, ‘Strong Independent Woman’ ebbs and flows and finds its way through the different emotions that come with chasing someone who isn’t looking for love out of necessity but rather, who’s so comfortable and confident in themselves that they don’t need anybody. Never losing control or becoming self-indulgent, this song keeps its central themes alive even though it touches on an array of different moods.

‘Room For Complication’ is one of those albums that would fit in in a social setting but can also be listened to through headphones in a darkened room. There are enough pop elements to keep it familiar while the arrangements push the limits of our comfort zones.
