The pure pop of this album is a joy to behold as it twists and turns through the quirky stories of aliens, speakers in love, hairstyles, clothes and relationships. Songs that on the surface appear light and fluffy but regularly reveal a darker more mature side of Jonathon Bree's songwriting. For every sha la la la la chorus there's an introspective lyric from Bree that casts if not doubt, then mild unease. Pop influences abound as Bree and Heather Mansfield merge Shangri La-styled choruses with Hazlewood/Sinatra vocal interplay and gorgeous harmonies, creating crafted indie pop that features clarinet, melodica, glockenspiel and horns as often as the standard guitar, bass and drums. It's charming, sophisticated and an immensely catchy combination of sounds and ideas that balances out some of the 'twee' factor in their often offbeat lyrics, making for an engaging album of beguiling and extremely playful pop.
