Two teasing songs by this Queens, New York quintet make me want two more
teasing songs by this Queens, New York quintet. Repeat as necessary.
With guitars that go "twang" and guitars that go "crunch," and drums that
go "thumpity-thump" under Victoria Kearns' clean pretty-picture
vocals, Gone Again owes perhaps more to the squeakier plastic edge
of 70's and 80's guitar rock, like Heart and Blondie, than to their trendy
cited similar artists (P.J. Harvey and The Pixies) or their name-drop New
Wave champion influences (REM, The Pretenders, U2, The Police). Which is
fine by me. The few ancestral hints the band drops, like a deft
application of the old "I Will Follow" U2 riff in "Legion," point to a
lineage of crowned pop heads. Urbs Musica has changed a sea change since
then, but fresh supple pop is as appealing now as it ever was.
Two songs do not a personality make, but what we've got to go on is light
and tuneful and fun, with the strummy ring and sweet twined soaring
harmonies of the finest indie bands, like 22 Brides, and catchy guitar
and keyboard licks that hook through the music with charming innocence.
The girlish infusion of Kearns' open voice makes a good cup of yearning
from these songs of un/chained love. I'm thinking of Martha & the Muffins
and of Ann Klein's Blood/Sugar project, of Jane Aire & the Belvederes, of
Robin Lane & the Chartbusters, and all the slightly-darkling sultry
ducklings who have rocked their regions and made heart-tugging work
of longing. It's familiar territory, and I love the lay of the land.
