  • Summary: The duo Acrylics -- comprised of musicians Molly Shea and Jason Klauber -- spent nearly two years working on their debut album, an eclectic mix of synth pop and soft rock.

    The songs appeal broadly, but they're tailor-made for two people.

    If they more often took the step from cute to sexy, Acrylics would deliver a lusher and brasher brand of pop.

    While the taste level occasionally falters, this is a fine and detail-oriented album that should be taken with a grain of salt by fans for whom music must always, at some level, be a site of iconoclasm.

    Shea and Klauber's approaches are distinct; she favors shimmery electro-pop and cooing vocals that evoke Kate Bush as much as they do Olivia Newton-John, while he trades in earnest, earth-toned vocals and acoustic guitars.
