You may be surprisingly delighted by this lovely little album by the brother-sister-friend trio known as Lightning Love. They may not be quite my cup of tea, but what can I say? They are adorable. They have mastered the sound of simplicity with their latest, long awaited release Blonde Album. The minimal, carefully arranged, melodic tunes within counter the delicate twee pop with lyrics that expound a clear-eyed and unflinching look at the sorrows of love and life. Like the new wave & Brit-pop groups that inspired the band, Lightning Love knows that the best way to swallow a bitter pill is to douse it in something sweet.
