might be named for a cry of sudden inspiration, and appropriately so: it neatly (and immediately) packages the saccharine sounds that made Cali-pop band Rooney
famous in the first place. The band has had a slow couple of years; mid-aughts label drama and a plethora of shelved material, saved only by the blistering pep of "When Did Your Heart Go Missing" (easily their best song to date, not including the new batch). But their output has never been marred by ire, and Eureka
is good fodder for the waves, even if they've spent a few years trying to get it off the pavement.
