Easily my album of the year. It's about the little spaces that reside in between moments of transition. The feeling of no longer being young but still not being an adult. The sense of vertigo that you feel in between the decision to end a bad relationship and actually working up the willpower to do it. The indescribable pain of having been hurt but lacking the vocabulary to define how it was done. And it's all wrapped up in a glorious bow of new wave synths and fuzzy guitar lines. Charles Olney
Hahah, "Instant Love" RUSHED into my Ears & on my Brainwaves the Moment I heard Henry for the First time and knew it wouldn't be the FINAL listening of Soccer Mommy's "Henry" nor thee end of my Love for Sophie Allison.
