On first listen, I have to admit that I didn’t give this much of a chance. It reeked of all things hipster to me. Vocals with a touch of reverb and a ton of fuzz? Check. Keyboard? Check. Lyrics about popping pills? Check. But, something in me held off on the review. I kept returning to write it, but every time my opinion shifted the smallest bit. And then the hooks began to take a hold of me. The songs are structured well, but they stay pretty safe. I kept expecting that one song where they go out of their minds, but they never do. It builds you up for something that they don’t follow through on. I can’t say that I totally back this yet, but I’m not ruling out the possibility that this could grow on me.
