Bailen’s Thrilled to be Here: A Debut Album Full of Musicality

Music has the power to transcend all boundaries, whether it be culture or language. And in the case of Bailen’s debut album, Thrilled to be Here, the power of music comes from the deep well of their musical heritage.

The trio, composed of siblings Daniel, David, and Julia Bailen, grew up in New York City with classically trained parents. Their love for music was ingrained in them from a young age as they were exposed to a diverse record collection that included the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and The Band.

Their musical education was not limited to just listening. Daniel and David studied classical guitar and bass respectively, while Julia took up cello and mandolin. It is no surprise then, that the trio plays multiple instruments on the album and their musicality is evident in every track.

The album is produced by the Grammy-Award winner, John Congleton (St. Vincent, The War on Drugs), which only adds to the appeal of the album. The transcendent harmonies, striking arrangements, and meticulous songcraft are a testament to the group’s unusual self-assurance, preternatural insight, and potent lyrical bite.

The album kicks off with the titular track, “Thrilled to be Here” – a bouncy tune that showcases the group’s knack for melody and harmonies. The track is an upbeat ode to the simple joys of life, with lyrics like “doin’ what I love every day / and can’t you tell, I’m just thrilled to be here.”

The album’s second track, “Something Tells Me” is a mid-tempo track that highlights the group’s vocal harmonies. The song features an infectious chorus that’s guaranteed to get stuck in your head.

“Not Gonna Take Me” is perhaps one of the album’s standout tracks. The song is built on a guitar riff that’s both catchy and groovy. It’s a song about standing up for oneself and not letting anyone dim your light. The line, “you can try but you won’t take me / yeah, you can cry but you won’t break me” is especially powerful.

The album’s lead single, “I Was Wrong” is a heartfelt ballad that showcases Julia’s impressive vocal range. The song is a reflection on a past relationship and the emotions that come with it. The song opens with the line, “is it too late to say I’m sorry / did I ruin everything / is it too late to say I’m sorry / tryin’ not to take it to heart.”

“Stray Dog” is another standout track that features a mandolin intro and a bluesy slide guitar. The lyrics tell the story of a stray dog that finds love and acceptance with a kind stranger. The song is beautifully arranged and executed, with each member of the group contributing to the overall sound.

“Rose Leaves” is a beautiful ballad that opens with the lines, “I’m picking up the pieces / of a life I thought I’d lead / nothing seems to fit / like it did when I was young.” The song is a reflection on growing older and the bittersweet realization that life doesn’t always turn out the way we plan.

The album’s closing track, “Give My Body Back” is a powerful and haunting track that starts with a lone cello and slowly builds to a crescendo. The song is about loss and the pain that comes with it. The lyrics, “give my body back to the ground, I can’t take this anymore” convey a sense of desperation and longing.

In conclusion, Bailen’s Thrilled to be Here is a remarkable debut album that showcases the trio’s musical talents and heritage. The album is a testament to the power of music and the ability of siblings to create beautiful harmonies. From the bouncy opener to the haunting closer, each track on the album is expertly crafted and executed. Bailen’s Thrilled to be Here is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates good music.
