This San Francisco trio is such a delightful surprise! Although I'd never heard of their name before, I confess I was drawn to the elegant packaging of their latest release: a gorgeous, textured hot air balloon surrounded by swallows on brown kraft paper, designed by the band's drummer, Vince Rodrigues. It's lovely! And the CD itself is cleverly designed to look like a record! Cute!
And, what about the music on the disc, you may ask? Well, it's just as lovely!
Lead vocalist/guitarist Dena Connolly has an unexpectedly husky singing voice, and bassist/keyboardist Heather Brubaker adds some sweetness with the band's 60's-inspired harmonies. "What Were They Thinking?" has a great call-and-response thing going on with some awesome groovy keyboards going on. The songs are quirky and catchy, and they kinda remind of a local band here in Seattle called Visqueen! Super fun, toe-tapping stuff!
