Tinted Windows is a power-pop supergroup made up of the odd-until-you-really-think-about-it crew of Taylor (the middle one) Hanson, Fountains of Wayne tunesmith Adam Schlesinger, former Smashing Pumpkin James Iha and Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos. Lead single “Kind of a Girl” is a brain-implantingly catchy pop treat, all crunchy guitars, glam-rock fuzz and an achingly melodic singalong chorus. They’ll be at SXSW on March 20, with their album dropping, via S-Curve, on April 21.
