Charlotte, North Carolina has a long history of superb indie-rock, and this first album from The Eyebrows reaffirms that tradition. Formed out of the ashes of Poprocket and Temperance League, some of these guys have been playing together for nearly 20 years, and it shows in the energetic and fun chemistry here.

Putting a lighthearted spin on power-pop, the trio’s inner B-52’s and Talking Heads are never far from the surface, as the vocal harmonies, retro organs, and hints at New Wave with fuzzed out guitars and dreamy synth make the album unpredictable in all the best ways. Frontman Jay Garrigan has a strong set of pipes on him, and the music isn’t anything to sneeze at either, and finds itself somewhere between syrupy sweetness of Cheap Trick and the rugged alt-rock of Pixies.
