Debut from this Chicago foursome. More New Wavey than The Killers, and lighter in vocal punch and content (when The Killers are on point), but the U2ish guitarwork is pleasant. Yeah, “Purple” is pleasant. I can’t see myself camping out for tickets, but I’d probably stick around for their whole set.
