Eve 6's first album in nine years, Speak In Code finds them still straddling alt-rock and the pop-punk of their stomping grounds in Southern California. Though it contains a handful of concessions to modern dance pop ("Victoria" and "B.F.G.F" are but two examples), most tunes feel like holdovers from the '90s. Regardless of their sound, Eve 6 have always possessed a knack for detailing the myriad absurdities of suburban life in the Golden State. The best example here is "Trust Me," with its cheeky lines, "I got the friends in Dubai. I got the place in Hawaii. I got the decadent style."
