From the brightly coloured patchwork artwork and their frankly odd band name, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr give the first impression that they're going to sound like a bold, brash electro pop offering, but on listening, it's much more of a pleasant surprise. A kind of chilled, electro-flavoured floaty indie-folk-pop in the vein of Young The Giant, a more lo-fi Death Cab For Cutie and a tamed Vampire Weekend, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr's opening track 'Nothing But Our Love' sounds a refreshing fusion of guitars and synths layered over carefully chosen beats.
