In Case You Forgot About Fun: 100 Pop Albums You Should Probably DL

Summary

After listening to a few of their earlier singles at work I started humming along, thinking to myself "Hmm, this is actually a good song, who is it?". After some Googling I learnt that they were some douchey looking hipster twats. My kind of people. The bond was instant, and they became one of my go-to bands of last year.

They have a knack for writing pretty universal "verse chorus verse" Pop tunes that always seem to progress nicely, building to a peak near the end of the track. There's nothing particularly unique about their songwriting or sound - which is clean Synthpop on the whole - but there's very little filler to they way they construct songs, a trend that continues even on some of the weaker album tracks. Overall it's a very palatable album from start to finish, even if it lacks a touch of individual sparkle or genius.
