Porches - Pool
Porches isn't a band that sits still. Past albums have mined lo-fi guitar pop and Americana. For their new LP, Pool, they offer accessible synth pop tunes with easily digestible melodies and sparkling hooks. The straightforward and generally sweet arrangements are counterbalanced by somewhat denser, more complicated, and darker lyrical content, providing a multi-textured set of songs that are intellectually satisfying as well as aurally pleasing. The vocals are sensitively delivered and bring the lyrics to life. The overall effect is pop music that is both sensuous and cinematic.
Porches are Aaron Maine and Greta Kline. Pool is released via Domino Record Company on February 5.
