Here We Go Magic
make pretty, quaint, plastic sounding music, all of which makes it hard to discern from kitsch-y trinkets and baubles (in a good way). It's the kind of music you don't expect, but are overjoyed to find stuffed in your stocking. The beauty of Pigeons
is the quirky appeal; slap-bass sounds and falsetto harmonies that right off the bat come off as odd-rock, but kind of melt into each other in wonderful ways. It's something like Ben Gibbard making music for an old SNES game, catchy, quick, and saccharine in surprising ways.
