North Elementary - Not For Everyone Just For You
North Elementary are an indie power pop group hailing from Chapel Hill, NC. The band's new album, Not For Everyone, Just For You, was recently released.
The band's uncanny knack for the hook coupled with a healthy dose of indie rock ethos creates a synth-based indie pop gem of a record.
The vocals are understated, possibly a little too understated. However, the trace twang gives them an intriguing hushed Dave Lowry sound.
"You Have a Heart" adds cacophonous shoegazer drums and guitars to the synth-pop mix to great affect. Strings are worked in to create a lush and full sound on "Speed of Lies".
The result is an elegant and sophisticated, yet fun collection.
If you are a fan of OK Go or Matt & Kim then North Elementary should be right up your alley.
