Thompson Square

At a time when country music sweethearts regale audiences with saccharine tunes about how “perfect” their love is, husband-and-wife duo Thompson Square’s debut is a refreshingly honest glimpse into the highs, lows and idiosyncrasies of a relationship. While love means adventure and escape from the mundane on “Getaway Car” and “One of Those Days,” it also means breaking things and slamming doors on “Let’s Fight,” as well as quirky arguments in “Who Loves Who More.” While the lyrics throughout their debut may be just unexpected enough to keep things interesting, Keifer and Shawna Thompson’s musical palate pegs them as a less soulful version of duo Steel Magnolia, and they don’t stray far from the rock-country hybrid. Their voices are solid and compelling, but that may not be enough to separate them from the pack.
