Walks that line between St. Vincent & Katy Perry, or Haim & Wilson Philips. VERY poppy, but with enough music chops, good song-writing, and integrity to pull it off. Produced by McKenzie Smith of Midlake, there’s an sturdy indie undercurrent that prevents this from tumbling too far into schmaltzville. Stand out tracks are truly that; they stand out from amongst the others with authority. Lover Girl (Track 8) is the real winner. Great jam.
