Mixed Emotions

Amoeba Review

Super Cooper, Hollywood 09/01/2012

Pure pop bliss. Like the best of ’80s synth pop with two cute boys. Snazzy drums and hooks. Sooooo GOOOD!


03/20/2012

Summer has come early in the form of Tanlines’ Mixed Emotions, an irresistible dance-rock album that manages to be smart while offering pop thrills to spare. They create a perfect singalong synth-pop jam with “All of Me” and marry that with lo-fi post-punk goodness (“Green Grass”), adult love songs with tribal underpinnings (“Abby”) and afro-pop-inspired tunes (“Yes Way”) that, thankfully, don’t sound like Vampire Weekend rehashes but rather another angle at similar influences. And speaking of VW, Mixed Emotions puts Tanlines in line with that band, Cut Copy and Phoenix as bands that manage to do it all, putting a smile on the face of critics and sophisticated pop fans alike.
