Boomkat Product Review:
This duo was formed from in Glasgow by Jihae, former singer of The Royal We, and Wallace, frontman of Bricolage. They've since cleared off to Los Angeles to hone a career as a '50s and '60s inspired pop outfit, and the results are collected for this massively charming debut album, Angelic Swells. In a sense, you might not be too out of line for thinking of Neverever as rather akin to Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's collaborative She & Him output, as filtered through punkish, garage rock sensibilities. Songs like 'Coconut Shampoo' (complete with its 'Hall Of The Mountain King' aping riffs) and the former single, 'Blue Genes' typify this sort of sound, but delving a little further into the tracklist you'll hear glimpses of hidden depths that go beyond the veneer of trashy retro chic, such as the stripped down, echoing guitar chords and swooning violins of '16th Wonder'.
