Liam Finn + Eliza Jane “Champagne in Seashells”

It’s an EP. I don’t know enough about music to know whether “Plane Crash” is in C, but Rilo Kiley fans would like this one nonetheless. “Long Way to Go” is catchier and has jangly guitar as well as some synths. This is one to dance to. In fact, I think I’ve heard this before. I have. The chorus has the same melody as “Do You Wanna Hold Me?” by Bow Wow Wow.
“Won’t Change My Mind” is slower and has the same music as “Another Day in Paradise” by Phil Collins. How is that even possible? It’s subtle, but it’s there. “Honest Face” has a peppy rhythm and a mid-90s power pop sound. Picking up the rear is “On Your Side.” It’s a fun amalgamation of sound.
This isn’t the first record of theirs that I’ve listened to, and I hope it won’t be the last. These guys are a lot of fun.
