The prolific band Dawes was initially formed from the remnants of their first venture, Simon Dawes. Nothing Is Wrong arrived as the band’s sophomore album and was initially released in 2011. The album came as a strong successor to their debut album, North Hills, and even surpassed their debut’s success. Lead singer and guitarist Taylor Goldsmiths’ warm vocals steep through each song on the album’s tracklist, giving pauses to fervent guitar and piano solos. Dawes moves through sounds both mellow and euphoric, standing on a balanced bridge of melodies to meet every taste.
Years later, Goldsmith reflected on the album, and said, “Each record has been a turning point and something of a growth spurt, but maybe none as pivotal as Nothing Is Wrong was for us. That was the moment where we could see ourselves turning from hopeful upstarts into lifers. Glad it’s still worth talking about 10 years later.”
This 10th-anniversary edition of Nothing Is Wrong also includes four new bonus B-sides from the band's original recording session, including "Strangers Getting Stranger," "All My Failures," "Rest Easy" and "Don't Send Me Away."
