    This is a pop record, and a great one at that. Hints of Elastica, Veruca, Republica, even Neko Case (isten to the country-inspired refrain on That Ain't Right) pepper this satisfying debut.

    Mid-album burners aside, Brightest Darkest Day is a strong debut, especially coming from artists with established musical pasts.

    Though Brightest Darkest Day isn’t a world-changer, you have to admire this pair’s indisputable dynamism.

    Given enough time, these experienced musicians should be able to pare things down to these more focused moments, finding the right songs to drape with their ultra stylized vision.
