The single from this San Francisco band’s debut reminds you instantly of one of those early ‘60’s pop and funk tunes, like something you might hear during one of those montages in the Ocean’s 11 films. This is mainly brought out by the hurried and syncopated drum and guitar parts intertwining with each other to create catchy and head-nodding grooves. The singer, Angelina Moysov, tends to dip into a soft and relaxed feel of singing almost a la Nico at times—especially during the verses—though she picks up her energy for the chorus, as she should. For those not looking for just another pop record, you will be pleased with this CD as it also has a tinge of more progressive elements to keep things interesting after the first few listens. So go start your year with some up beat, positive songs, okay?
