7/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 May 2014

This is quite a sweet thing......if you like 1950’s/60’s girl group stuff and The Moldy Peaches.

The band, some formerly in Architecture In Helsinki,  are obviously completely in love with the naive doo-wop pop of the era but play their retro-vintage tunes in the manner of a group with more in common with the minimal pop of Young Marble Giants. Everything is played nice and quiet with soft percussion, gently plucked bass and guitar and whispered vocals. On opener ‘You Make Me’ singer Isobel Knowles  is whispering sensually into my ear and is making me come over a little funny inside. Its lovely. ‘Babies’ is  kind of Kimya Dawson type clap-a-thon juvenile pop, ‘Gotta Stop It’ is pure beehive call and response 50’s fun and they have a habit of following something pretty and nice with a nursery rhyme. I can see what they are trying to do with ‘Round n Round’; the ‘wheels on the bus’ style opening gives way nicely into a glorious slow melancholic section but its a little overly twee for big men like me. On ‘Just You’ they veer into a slo-mo version of the type of stuff Adventures In Stereo did quite successfully a few years back, at other times they sound like the Shangri-La's trying to play their own instruments. 

Yes there’s some clunky bits but there’s enough gorgeously breathy heart-melting moments to make up for them.
