Here's the first full-length from Alice Hubley's latest outfit Cosines, offering us an appealing take on twee-pop from a strangely krautrock-ish angle, with the rhythms and synth lines often lending a Kraftwerk/Stereolab feel to their catchy, personable pop songs in amongst some more straightforward quirky indie fare that's not a million miles away from the Seven Inches.
It's a clever combination, since the nostalgic, robotic elements help scour off a little of the syrupiness that makes twee-pop a bit of a slog sometimes. I'm particularly liking the 'Look Around You'-ish library synth runs in 'Walking Away'. Overall it's a jaunty collection of bouncy and tuneful pop songs with a cool head-noddy kraut edge. Twee-pop can often be a bit too sickly for me but I'm finding this dead charming.
