CHANDELI’ERS: Self-titled: EP

May 08, 2013

The first output from a new New York/primarily Brooklyn band, featuring members of Ringers, The Besties, and Bent Outta Shape. It leans more towards the mid-tempo and poppy side of the spectrum, aligning with more with vintage Elvis Costello or even what you would hear on a tried and true oldies station, particularly due to the (often crooning) male/female vocals. But there’s just enough grit to keep it from getting too saccharine. Overall, a solid record that leaves me intrigued to see what comes next.
