After the orchestral extravaganza of 2004's fantastic No Cities Left, the Dears didn't leave themselves much room on their next album to go even bigger, lusher, more orchestral. It would be too much, and they knew it, so instead they chose to strip down their arrangements, make them simpler and less ornate. This isn't to say that Gang of Losers is just Murray Lightburn playing an acoustic guitar and crooning forlornly, but it does mean that the Dears seem to have traded in their strings and horns for more straightforward electric guitar and keyboard riffs.
The Dears are an odd bunch. After nigh on ten years of plugging away at the Montreal music scene, it looked like 2004's No Cities Left would be it for them. That was until the Arcade Fire came along and stole all their thunder with their classier orchestral arrangements even weirder and husband and wife team, like some kind of musical Lester and Eliza.
