iTunes Review

Brothers Joseph and Sebastian Keefe perfect their sun-drenched harmonies and expansive instrumentation on this second album, and the result is shimmering, golden, and quietly cinematic. These are songs that break your heart in ways you’ll not only welcome but actively seek out, from “Hero” to “Hey Ma.” And if it makes you think of the West Coast jangle-pop that started with The Byrds and extends through to Beachwood Sparks, The Shins, and Fleet Foxes, well, that’s just fine by them.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic

These guys are amazing. Just saw them live in NYC. Excellent musicianship. Buy the album!!!

Listenable... but....

Not a bad record but... nothing on this comes at all close to the harmonic sophistication of the vocal arrangements of the Beach Boys or Mamas and Papas. It's basically just indie pop with some harmony singing. Nice, but I really don't see the comparison.

Hero✌

I adore the song Hero. It reminds me of Adventure Time for some reason, and its beautiful and different. Definitely my new favorite song ;)
