I like this group. Correct! have a charm to them that speaks to the dance chic as well as the cheery hipster on their recent release No Fault to Our Logic. You’ll understand once you take a listen. And however you interpret this collage of indie pop magic, you’d best bust a move or two because they don’t make bands like this too often. Timothy O’Brien’s vocals can do wrong even when you feel like he might be straining for the note, it’s there and it’s unique beyond measure.
He’s like the catalyst for Correct! and all good things sort of just move around with him. The band classifies this album as “Four songs about people who were wrong about stuff.” Simply put and stated in a fun and dry way – I take to this style nicely. Who were the people and what were they wrong about? It’s up to you to figure it out, to dig into the lyrics and find that higher meaning. I won’t ruin the journey here.
I will say these four tracks are moderate in length, but not in quality. The instrumentation is layered and dense when necessary, the rhythms purely serve the song, and the melodies seemed to have been educated at Catchy University. “Tripping Up” is a solid opener with mid tempo grooves and some brightly sprinkled synth that is just pop incarnate. The vocal round completes the scene and its all so infectious.
“Make Me” is a gem as well, really scoring on the intelligently designed dance / shimmy inspiration. This band is like audio courage for the awkward youth that want to get down. To walk in on a Correct! dance party would likely be equally hilarious and awesome.
“Cowards” takes a different turn and I can’t say it’s a bad choice, but the other three just strike with a little more gusto if you know what I mean. So let’s prance on toward “Crook.” Arguably the best chorus on the album, but no jury could possibly make a decision. O’Brien is back to his old tricks on shaking the airwaves with the killer tenor wavering in and out of control, but always committed. No fault to our logic comes into play with this one and it’s delivered in a playful and snarky way almost as if to tell those people who were wrong about stuff – hey dudes, we’re right.
