The duo make '60s-inspired garage- and surf-rock, filtered through '90s indie-pop, music with simple standards. Is it catchy? Does it sound cool? The tunes here answer with a resounding "yes"; the sisters Ambridge have used some serious elbow grease here.
The sugary "I'm In Love" blasts by in a flash of staccato guitar and yell-along choruses driven by no-frills drum bashing. "Pearl and Oyster" is, far and away, the standout track on the album, and maybe a candidate for one of the catchiest songs of 2015, featuring swirling organ riffs and a hook that builds so relentlessly that the song's abrupt end feels like a mercy killing. The sleepy "Like a Wave" adds a bit of dynamic, but without making a real impression, it lasts a bit too long. The band right the ship, though, with the vicious, thrashy cheer of "Honey Let Go."
