Despite its title, Sound of Defeat has nothing of the scent of failure about it. Until June infuse this EP with a tingling, melodrama-laced sound with obvious roots in modern Britpop. Singer/pianist Josh Ballard seems to have absorbed lessons from the Chris Martin school of falsetto — although there are also hints of the Beach Boys and similar ‘60s groups in his vocal style as well. In any case, he and band mates Brad Ballard (guitar) and Daniel Dempsey (drums) boil down their influences into songs of pure yearning and desire, with Christian intimations present below the surface. “The Man Who Lost His Soul” rides a jaunty Latin-accented groove while touching upon a Bible-based message. “Baby (Hope You Understand)” and “The World Ends Tonight” find Josh pining away at the peak of his vocal range, transcending ordinary heartache into something ethereal. Brad’s vigorous guitar strums give the title tune a propulsive, Edge-esque shimmer. Best of all is “In My Head,” a visionary love song of both delicacy and strength.
