Enthusiastically received by the blogosphere, the debut of this duo from San Francisco seemed more a collection of hit singles than the first work of any artist. Showcasing a classy, confident songwriting style that drank in 60’s pop – be it British or Californian psychedelia-, with touches of shoegaze enhancing Christopher Owen’s personal stories of heartbreak and redemption. “Lust For Life”, “Hellhole Ratrace” or “Morning Light” would have been this year’s indie anthems, if such a thing as indie still existed.

Released on True Panther. Available to listen in Spotify.
