"They create sophisticated & charming indie/pop songs that occasionally have moments of calamity and moodiness.

If Love Notes is their best album, it’s because it’s also their most emotionally conflicted. As usual, Hazard sings lead on most of these songs, and where other singers might milk these lyrics for every bit of emotionalism, her bright vocals and breathy phrasing prove cooler and almost matter-of-fact, as if these are matters of the head more than of the heart.
