Listen to our podcast preview of the new albumBands are a lot like eggs they require an attentive incubation period before hatching. Singer and pianist Anna Cole brooded over multiple incarnations of the Kansas City group Anvil Chorus before transitioning to Lights & Siren. A few lineup changes later, the band is off and running as a hard-rocking quintet that's intently more upbeat and showy than Cole's former projects. The additions of guitarist Tim Braun and bassist Jordan Lebrecht (formerly of Supernauts) brought two more vocalists into the band, allowing for more developed harmonies and increased testosterone levels. The group's newfound chemistry resonates proudly on its forthcoming album "Our Hands Make Waves."
