    Many of the songs on Aloha Moon hint at '80s soft rock, with their delicate guitar and drumming, while still providing a contemporary dream-like quality.

    Whilst Aloha Moon isn't quite the immaculate conception, its "Crystal visions, astral hearts and stars" still conjure enough supernatural, spellbinding spectacle to charm the most ardent of sceptics.

    The 10 tracks on the act's full-length debut don't unfold so much as softly purr, with titles such as "Teenage Love" and "Kaleidoscope Hearts" summarizing the starry-eyed romanticism the pair specializes in.

    The ideal summer soundtrack. It is charismatic, warm, and sexy, with just the right touch of mystique.

    Their sound yearns for those Pacific nights, with a hazy moon illuminating San Francisco Bay. It's going to take a bit more than sparkles and glitter, though, to propel their intelligently crafted dream-pop a bit further.

    Dulcet space pop for an audience, not headphones. [Jun 2012, p.158]
