Harvee handles orchestral pop with brio: every title found on this first opus (Independently-released) has the appearance of a refined and convincing melodic jewel. Forget the filling at the end of the album, the Valleyfield formation takes advantage of the 44 minutes of Sink or Swim to serve you hymns tinged with romance while remaining dynamic, bursting and feverish. The voices of lead singer Philip Guerin and trumpet player Carine combine wonderfully with pieces with multiple breaks (changing tone and sometimes mood) and slightly epic orchestrations of strings and brass. Harvee may be following in the footsteps of Arcade Fire, but he does it with panache, demonstrating an undeniable compositional strength.
