Cold War Kids album pales

‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts’ Cold War Kids

The four-piece indie band Cold War Kids released their debut EP, “Mulberry Street,” in 2005 while they were still working out of one member’s apartment in Fullerton, Calif. That record featured “Quiet, Please!” – a unique, drama-building, slow tempo tune that showcased lead vocalist Nathan Willett’s somersaulting tenor.

After a few more EPs and albums, and relocating to Long Beach, the band is releasing its fourth full-length album, “Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.” Willett’s unique vocals are still their signature, but this 10-song collection is uneven.

This talented singer needs some room and understated accompaniment. Unfortunately, this record affords him too few opportunities.
