8/10 Mike Staff review, 05 November 2013

I could swear (no pun intended) that I had to review this band’s debut album only about a month ago. It turns out this isn’t because they’re outrageously fast workers but because the debut was rushed out over here as a precursor to this second album on Wichita, aimed straight for the hearts of the ‘90s indie rockers. It’s boy-girl guitar pop with chunky post-grunge riffs and some great dual vocal bits which remind me of Louisville’s Giving Up - plaintive and earnest and untrained but always engaging.

There’s a lot of names from the ‘90s who come to mind when listening to this...Archers of Loaf, Love Battery, Belly, Superchunk - it’s that kind of highly accessible post-grunge slacker indie college rock business which every record label wanted a piece of 20 years ago. Sometimes when the boy is singing it’s quite Get Up Kidsy, and the girl gets a quiet song which is like Rilo Kiley or something. There’s a piano-led psych pop number ‘Glare of the Sun’ which switches things up a bit towards the end but mostly this is good old fashioned heart-on-sleeve indie. There’s been an ever increasing avalanche of indie rockers taking their cues from the ’90s of late, and Swearin’ are another decent one. I expect they’re fun live too.
