When we first encountered their music they were best described as a jangle pop band.
However, for new album Adrift the brothers have created a very appealing tapestry of crystalline synth pop.
So the sound is more Stockholm/Malmo than Dunedin/Glasgow.
But the hooks are good, the choruses soar, and the arrangements paint in warm, bright colors.
This album is so good that you will want to play it right now and think of warmer times.
But don’t forget to break it out again next summer for a worthy encore.
A highly recommended album – feelgood, Summery jangle pop at its best.
