Review: Justin Kline "Triangle" [EP]
Justin Kline is a powerpop fan's dream come true - his new four song EP, "Triangle" is bursting with catchy melodies and sunny arrangements. Indeed, he cites his influences as "love and sunshine", and he has a boyish voice to match - somewhere between Kyle Vincent and Andy Lehman. The best half of the EP are the cute "Baby, You're a Mess" and the outstanding "Alison, We Cannot Be Friends" - each is remarkably infectious and dares you not to sing along. The other two tracks are a bit over the top for me, sounding too much like a carnival circus - reminds me of a powerpop carousel and it just makes me dizzy. What could be argued as the feel good EP of the year, you don't want to miss "Triangle" if classic powerpop is your thing.
