Amoeba Review

05/18/2015

With Highlights, Tanlines expand their electronic sound palate to produce an immensely likable overarching pop album. Tracks like “Pieces” call out their ’80s-indebted roots with New Order-ish synthesizers and a new romantic croon, proving they still care about their fans and can appeal to them with terrific results. “Palace” sits closer to M83 with its anthemic vocals and cinematic synthesizers. But Tanlines aren’t merely trying to craft a festival-friendly electro-pop album—the duo has far too much personality for that. “Slipping Away” introduces some surf guitars for a bouncing tune that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Drums album.  “Invisible Ways” scales back for a country-flavored guitar number that nicely features Eric Emm’s Bryan Ferry-ish croon. “Thinking” drums up some Detroit techno chords and beats. And “If You Stay” is radio-ready pop-rock with heart. Mixed Emotions was a stellar debut, but Highlights shows Tanlines have the songwriting smarts to stick around.
