BOARDWALK - 'IT'S OVER'

Following the beautiful lead track ‘I’m To Blame‘, Los Angeles duo Boardwalk (Amber Quintero and Mike Edge) have delivered their debut album via Stones Throw. Drawing comparisons to dream pop contemporaries Beach House and Mazzy Star, the pair has been harshly judged for similarities. That aside, Boardwalk’s record deserves to be judged on its own merits. Amber’s voice is perfectly suited to their slow motion, psych pop sound, which is full of strong melodies and sedate pop numbers. Album cut ‘It’s Over’ is just one example. The LP could use a few tempo changes and perhaps have taken a few risks but overall its a welcome debut that’s well worth a listen (for fans of Widowspeak, Tamaryn and Memoryhouse).
