The White Ravens

 

continued

There are at least six poptastic hits on their new album, Gargoyles and Weather Vanes, that range from the quirky "Atomic Panda" and "Tick Tock" to the utterly irresistible "Sparks." The delightful oo-ee-oo chorus of the latter can give you a Friday high on any day of the week. Though they never abandon their amazing pop sensibility, they do tackle the occasional subdued subject. "Broken Halves" is all about disillusionment with a romantic relationship, but the sentiments don't feel trite or angsty. There's a certain tongue-in-cheek maturity to their lyrics that, blended with their genre-expanding sense of what's possible in pop, could make the White Ravens your new favorite band.

The White Ravens are at the Savoy on Tuesday, September 14 and at the Blind Pig on Wednesday, September 22.    (end of article)
