I'm still a sucker for good pop music, especially done in interesting ways. These guys give me a jj vibe, which works for me.

Brooklyn duo Acrylics have signed to Friendly Fire Recordings (Violens, The Concretes, Oh No Ono) for the co-release of their debut full-length, Lives and Treasure, now set for release on March 1st through Friendly Fire Recordings/Hot Sand Records.
After forming in 2008, Acrylics (Molly Shea and Jason Klauber) became the first artist to sign to Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and Ethan Silverman's label, Terrible Records (Twin Shadow, Class Actress) with the release of their Taylor-produced debut EP, All of the Fire.
Between tours and performances with A Sunny Day In Glasgow, Das Racist, Morning Benders and The Smith Westerns through SXSW, CMJ and beyond, the band spent two years in and out of the studio to finish Lives and Treasure. With the help of producers Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift), Matt Boynton (Gang Gang Dance, MGMT), Britt Myers (Yeasayer, Chairlift) and mastering engineer Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Nas), the album is now complete and ready to be heard.
