Style: New New Wave, Alt-Rock

Right out of the gate, this five-piece band hits you with a vibrant, welcoming, singalong pop-rocker (“HYA”) that has super-fluid fretwork and extremely powerful drums. And what becomes clear soon enough is the ‘80s New Wave element in the band’s pop-alternative sound. Production is just as sparkling (great bassline) on “In A Place (The Bends)”––“That girl will give you the bends!” The band then shifts gears to deliver the icy sparkle of “Between The Lines” where prominent synthesizer and echoing reverb provide the appropriate downtempo mood for a song of love and devotion. Though lyrics are maybe too often slurred and mumbled, we still gotta commend this band for its long list of strengths.
