our town

pololeo ~ our town (shelflife, 2002)

oh, pololeo... so hard to find informations about you. what i know is that they're a duo - i love duos - formed by husband and wife patrick carney and denise grollmus. while making a research to make this post more reliable i discovered that they're in a band called churchbuilder where denise takes care of backing vocals and synths and patrick guitars and backing vocals.
our town is a short ep released on shelflife and is... well... very urban as the name may suggest. all the five tracks have less than three minutes and each has a name of a road, avenue or street.
the sound is a mix of synths, beats and soft guitars. by the way, the guitars fit very well with denise sweet voice. the songs belong to a place filled with naivety and melancholy in a city full of balloons and strong colors.
it's a great ep because you can sense the playfulness and ludicity of diferent sounds permeating the songs to create a quite enjoyable ten minutes or so...
great for walkings around your town playing with soap bubbles.

I recall churchbuilder as an excellent band. I'm not a fan of synth, but it's used well here and Denise's voice is terrific. Thanks for this.
