Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Jason Klauber, Molly Shea (vocals, guitar, keyboards, percussion).
Photographer: Bek Andersen .
Molly Shea and Jason Klauber, better known as the duo Acrylics, spent the better part of two years crafting their debut album, Lives and Treasure, with three producers, resulting in a set of songs far more polished than their first EP, All of the Fire. As on that release, synth pop and soft rock dominate here, but Acrylics' sound is much wider than those two styles. Shea and Klauber's approaches are distinct; she favors shimmery electro-pop and cooing vocals that evoke Kate Bush as much as they do Olivia Newton-John, while he trades in earnest, earth-toned vocals and acoustic guitars. Most of Lives and Treasure alternates between their respective styles, with her "Nightwatch" and "Sparrow Song" and his "The Window" emerging as respective highlights. However, alchemy occurs when Acrylics manage to incorporate their individual styles, as on the gossamer-smooth "Molly's Vertigo" and "Asian Pear," which effortlessly blends Klauber's voice and strumming into Shea's synth dream world. ~ Heather Phares
