Ottawa’s Skytone don’t really fit into a neat little package for consumers, but that’s precisely why I love the group. Sure, their brand new album Jangle Waves has the aforementioned jangling, but there are also moments that lean towards swinging croons like in ‘Second Hand Shops‘. They almost adopt a beach vibe with ‘Missing You‘ only to move into dreamy pop territory with the following tune, ‘Lonely Holiday‘. Throughout the listen, you’ll likely find yourself enveloped in warm harmonies reminiscent of the sun you’re trying to avoid outside your window; it’s the power of pure pop at its best!
