Fiancé

Please, Ambitious, Please
Self-released

Bands with designs on commercial success often remove anything resembling a personality from their work in an attempt to broaden their appeal. So credit Fiancé with coming up with material that's extremely accessible without succumbing to blandness. "Pretty Model Hands," a highlight from this EP, is built upon the sort of pretty keyboards that get songs on Grey's Anatomy, but it also sports guitar with a touch of distortion, multiple melody lines, a ripe vocal by Patrick McGuire and some unexpectedly memorable lyrics ("Look at me/I'm lost, drunk and justified"). Elsewhere, "Twenty-something" gives off a feeling of windswept desperation despite its overt pop sensibilities, and "Quiet Things" explores the dark side of sunny harmonies to intriguing effect. Ambitious? More so than is obvious at first blush.
