We gave it a B+

On their second record, Australian brothers Keith and Michael Jeffrey double down on their angular keyboard-soaked alt-pop. They manage to strike an even greater balance between blockbuster sing-alongs (“Stockholm,” “Refugees”) and explorations of more ethereal terrain, like the gloriously disorienting “Friends With Enemies.” The duo may not be reinventing the wheel, but they spin it in thrilling new ways. B+
