A winning blend of careful precision and mercurial abandon, KaneStrang's new album Two Hearts and No Brain is constantlysurprising. With a penchant for melodic earworms to rival thoseof the world's best pop songwriters, the New Zealand artist'sglittering hooks twist and turn in perfect synch with meticulousband arrangements. Hints of 60s pop (NB: Zombies, Stooges) andearly 00s alt-rock (Interpol, Elliott Smith) shine through, butthere's a contemporary crunch, sheen and bald lyrical tone toStrang's sound that places him firmly in the here and now. "Stranghas a gift for pulling diamonds from the rough," says Pitchfork,"[his] songs have a way of making modest acts seem heroic."Strang's proclivity for writing smart, anthemic guitar pop shinesbrightest now that he has moved away from the bedroom andinto the studio. Showcasing his new collaborative approach torecording and writing with his band, the four-piece twists Strang'smelodies upside down and pushes his hooks inside out. TwoHearts and No Brain proves emotive and playfully laced with atongue-in-cheek nostalgia - timelessly old and new in the samebreath.
