"I'm feeling lucky/I'll bet my home town/Nothing can stop us now," sings Zac Barnett on the uproarious "Hit It" from American Authors' debut. He's talking about picking up a hot date, but he might as well be describing the chutzpah this Brooklyn-via-Boston quartet displays on Oh, What a Life. Buzzing with the earnestness of Mumford & Sons, the pop sheen of Foster the People, and the anthemic sing-along choruses of fun., the band's music is exuberant, fearless, and impossibly catchy. With its plucked banjos and clomping beat, "Best Day of My Life" was ubiquitous on commercials and movie soundtracks in 2013. As effervescent as that track is, it's not even the album standout. That honor goes to "Luck," a colossal pop-rock tune that bounces along to a sturdy beat and syncopated guitar riff before exploding into a lighter-waving chorus that rivals the feel-good choral wallop of "Some Nights." From the strutting bombast of "Believe" to the punk-pop of "Heart of Stone" to the Celtic-inflected title track, American Authors may have written the book on alt-pop crossover success in 2014.
