In a new project, a breath away from The Spinto Band, Nick Krill and Joey Hobson join forces with visual artists to bring their Teen Men debut to life. Though the songs carve relief-deep definition for themselves, the mixture of forms used in the various videos accompanying the tunes really help to convey the fuller sculptures. A mild melancholic vocal sometimes pulls the listener closer, but the songs are often delivered with a certain level of detachment, allowing their life to be observed, but from a window far away. This precise dreamy pop record has been perfectly realised and feels unworried by its unfaltering passivity. If you feel unworried by that too, there is a sweet record to be enjoyed here.
