BEEKEEPERS, THE: Song Demos 2: CS

Some sharp, well-crafted pop that feels embedded in tradition, which holds it back in a way. The lyrics rhyme, the chords resolve, it’s solid enough. But something keeps the songs from achieving flight. Maybe it’s the production? Too much rule-following? I’d like to hear what comes next. –Matt Werts (Beekeepers, the-beekeepers.bandcamp.com)
