Super-catchy, new wavy, indie-pop. Boy-girl vocals, guitar, drums & casio with hooks galore & wonderful sing-song backup vocals. This debut album was recorded by Poster Children's Rick Valentin. Incredibly fun, keyboard-kissed pop. Subsequent releases on Parasol, 100 Guitar Mania, Kindercore, and March Records.
Think early-Superchunk meets The Rentals!
