Album Review
Sophia Vo
Reviewed 2011-01-01
Mix of “angular indie rock and classic twee pop.” The female-vocal melodies are infectious for dancing or for seeking lost loves. Lyrics are wonderfully complex and worth listening to intently. Try 1, 2, 4 (but any of these songs are radio-worthy).

FCC clean
*1. Synth keyboarding. Vocals grow more upbeat when drumbeat starts, then return to a slower melody. *2. Marching drum beat and airy keyboarding. Upbeat melody and hints of glam rock. 3. Summer anthem; carefree harmonizing and lead vocals. Steady drums and interludes of keyboarding. *4. Chamber pop with cello accompaniment. Vocals with an ominous edge and guitar riffs. 5. Gentle synth keyboarding. Acoustic guitar strumming and languid vocals. 6. Simple piano keyboarding in line with vocals. Transitions to electropop and dreamy & upbeat melody. 7. Bass backbeat and steady keyboard rhythm. Electropop alternating with strong vocals. 8. Duet with female and male vocals. Bebop rhythm and keyboard melody. 9. Short guitar riffs, steady drums, pop keyboards. 10. Light snare drums, airy synth, focus on gentle vocals.
