High quality sunshiney pop from Philadelphia five-piece Cheerleader.
Their debut LP, The Sunshine Of Your Youth, came out in May. It's not deep, it's not radical, but it's jolly pleasant and thrums along at a summery pace without an obvious weak link.
The Daily Breeze say "[t]he entire album has a striking freshness and simplicity, because the band relies on tried-and-true tenets: tuneful songs, powerful but controlled playing, and arrangements crafted for maximum aural impact." Which to us means: not exactly ground-breaking, but really quite good. And as the sun shines through the office window, that's absolutely fine by us.
The album is on general release from all the usual places and you can find the band on Twitter @chrleader
