Tender Trap

Film Molecules

K

Sounding a bit like an unholy alliance between Blondie and The Magnetic Fields, Tender Trap has a bubbly synth-pop sound that is so infectious the CD should carry a warning label. The songs on Film Molecules are instantly likable and feel so very familiar without being merely retreads of better material. The trio, made up of members from Heavenly and Marine Research, certainly know their pop. Film Molecules is probably not an album “serious” musicians are going to sit around and analyze and discuss the timbre of the singer’s voice or the radical new chord progressions. No it’s the album for people on the go. It’s a freeway sing a long, dance in your underwear on a hot summer night kind of record.
