Album Review

Shoestrings' brittle indie-pop follows in the grand tradition of early Everything But the Girl, the Sundays and Sarah Records bands like the Field Mice and the Orchids, offering lovelorn lyrics and shimmering melodies which are positively ingratiating. Gentle and unassuming, Wishing On Planes is all the more charming for its subtlety; the best tracks, like "Whipped" and "Oceans in the Seashells," possess a quiet grace all too rare in contemporary pop music.

Customer Reviews


This album is great. It opens with a short acoustic song, Rollercoaster, featuring the feminine half of the Shoestrings, Rose, singing a few words. It then jumps into a bouncy pop number Coffee. My favourite track on the CD is Whipped, a canonical pop-song if there ever was one. The music is quite light and accoustic for the most part. The album ends with a more melancholy number 1st Grade Love Affair, which still seems to fit with the spirit of the album.
