ALBUM REVIEW — AN HORSE

AN HORSE

Walls

(Mom + Pop)

Grammatically incorrect moniker aside, Australian indie-pop duo An Horse make sparkling, literate indie pop that rarely goes as deep as they think it does. But there are still some amiable moments on their second album, Walls, especially the ones where singer Kate Cooper doesn’t get too caught up in what she’s singing. She often stretches syllables, which helps guide songs like “Swallow the Sea” and “Trains and Tracks” through the occasional muck. So does her little trick of repeating key lines before pulling back right at the second you’re growing tired of them. That’s when An Horse truly find an groove.
