Demo Love is here to spread throwback poptimism

Demo Love is here to spread throwback poptimism

 Demo Love's tagline really spoke to me: "Remember your favorite high-school bands? Remember major chords and rockin' jangle-pop?" Yes. Yes I do. The band's debut, self-titled album is a real winner- it's lush, full of hooky melodies and choruses, and is superbly arranged with guitar riffs and a well-executed rhythm section. Two highlights are "You & Me" and "Evelyn" that almost feel more like rock than pop- but then again, back in the day, that's what our favorite bands sounded like. Final track "Stay" is more wistful than the rest of the batch, but equally lovely. The whole record is carried by the warm and caring vocals of Chris Banke and Benjamin Lusk. If the new "it" genre is throwback, I'm down. -Geena Kloeppel
