WOW! This Canadian band mines the orch-pop territory and makes it sound new, fresh. Kinda like The Left Banke meet The Zombies with XTC(lots- yeah!), Sneetches, Frisbie, Beulah and AC Newman/New Pornographers. "A Lesson In Science" is a seductive and addictive melodic tour de force, bottom line. Cinderpop boast an eclectic round up of musicians from various backgrounds who have found the right mutual influences to create a singular eclectic vision. "Incredible songwriting akin to something by Elliot Smith with joie de vivre. Kevan Ellis` voice is also eerily similar to the deceased Smith as it dances breathily through organic, melodic instrumentals that the music press likes to compare to the overmentioned Zombies. " - Ottawa Star. A Lesson in Science jumps from the crazed rock urgency of the opening track Ã�ï¿½Ã�Â¢"Bumblebee" straight into the piano and horn-based Beatlesque music hall of the title track and directly around another corner for the next song. As with their earlier records, you never know what to expect from song to song.
"It`s The Nines meets Elliot Smith meets The New Pornographers, with plenty of retro harmonies and vocal lines that bring to mind David Vandervelde, Matthew Sweet and Eric Matthews. Disparate artists, no doubt but they share a classic pop sensibility that`s never retro. Psychedlic, spar and affecting, A Lesson In Science is a lesson in songwriting" - Popganda.
"5+++. This represents everything that is right and good about 21st century pop music. A resoundingly pleasant album" - Baby Sue. "This is a magic potion for modern pop, the secret formula of the science of a song and Cinderpop owns the patent. "Boomerang" is an exquisite example of everything at which Cinderpop excels. There`s the immediate hook on guitar, echoed by washes of keys laid over a propulsive beat, and layered with high harmonies complementing Ellis`s sweetly simple tale of misconceived and unrequited love." - Pop Matters. Extremely Highly Recommended, no doubts here.
