Country: U.S.A.
Genre: Indie Pop

Pink Hearts Yellow Moons is about as perfect as pop records come -- fuzzy, buoyant, and ridiculously catchy, in essence it's a classic girl group disc re-imagined for the lo-fi era, brilliantly marrying its head-bobbing melodies and la-la-la harmonies with a garage-quality sonic approach which lends even the most precious moments a tuff-grrrl edge. Tammy Ealom's songs are models of simplicity, three-chord gems crafted with precision and purpose, and for all the superficial breeziness of her lyrics, tracks like "Just Like Henry," "Lookaround," and "If You Should Try to Kiss Her" cast a keen eye on boy/girl dynamics, evoking the trials of modern romance with wit and nuance. Cute but never cutesy, sweet but never sappy, Pink Hearts Yellow Moons is utterly irresistible.
