These coed Canadian dream-pop warriors are the only indie band with the precise combination of braininess and squishiness necessary to get away with naming a song "Do You Want to Die Together?" And it's pretty great, buoyed as always by the sweet vocal interplay between Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan, a doomed-romance double helix both heartening and heartbreaking, the intricate chamber-pop around them sighing and stomping in equal measure. Thesis: "The world won't listen to this song/ And the radio won't play it/ But if you like it, sing along/ Sing 'cause you don't know how to say it."
Rob Harvilla
