“Nee is the dance squad at the cool kid magnet school. It is vintage synthesizers and ricocheting drums and poses. Mostly it is Kristin Dennis, who is surprisingly effective at making you feel bad for not dancing. She also, while singing certain vowels, sounds like an actual bird. The band emanates from her in every way. They are her lyrics, as brazen as “I fell in love on my back,” the opening salvo of single “Pretty Girls.” The battles with love found elsewhere in the catalogue get as dire as poisonings.
If you think bad-times subject matter precludes good-times songs, you obviously aren’t much into songs. The pop music created by Dennis, Synth player Lex Herbert, multi-talented multi-instrumentalist David Beeman and tireless drummer Mic Boshans can make you forget, for a moment, that there is such a thing as tomorrow. Sounds, visions, choreographed dance routines and assorted titillations are just a well-aimed Google search away.”
