"Guys with pianos are the new guys with guitars. Billy Joel and Elton John kicked a rather large chunk of ass in their heydays, so why can't indie-rock kids do the same now? They can, and the Prom does." (Magnet)

This three-piece band out of Seattle has found a slightly cheerful way to restore my faith in pop music. A piano, a bass and a drum set. NO! It's not Ben Fold's Five (dear Lord it's not Ben Folds) but it's pop nevertheless. Call it chamber pop, call it indie... call it what you will. A rose by any other name is still a rose.
