ATLANTIC/PACIFIC

ATLANTIC/PACIFIC Meet Your New Love (No Sleep)

NY-based duo Atlantic/Pacific, aka Garrett Klahn (Texas is the Reason) and John Herguth (House & Parish, The Love Scene) has been likened to the old world charms of Fleet Foxes and post-punk cool of The Smiths. Meaning of course, warm melodies/harmonies and sophisticated arrangements. Songs like the jazzy Patterns, the epic Shore to Shore and the U2-channeling faux-anthemic Let Me Into Your Light provide a counterpoint to the largely rustic country-folk-pop repertoire.

Or perhaps alt-country (think: Wilco/Jayhawks variety) is a better description as tracks like the soothing Some Weary Valentine, poignant One on One and the shuffling Picture Perfect, will satisfy the Americana enthusiasts out there. With memorable tunes married to authentic country vibes, Meet Your New Love is a no brainer for all discerning Power of Pop readers! Highly recommended!!
