    The band's slick blend of classic new wave, tech-savvy dance rock, and mathy indie pop can be jarring upon first listen, but multiple spins reveal an impressively tight unit that understands the thin line between immaculately rendered electro-art pop cacophony and hook-friendly modern rock.

Flashy synths clash with aggressive guitar riffs to deliver a solid album that without a doubt has an irresistible charm.Some filler material towards the end, but overall a solid record produced by a young band that has a bright future ahead of them.
