The Aluminum Group

Plano

by Sarah Zupko

 

Brothers John and Frank Navin lead the Aluminum Group through a veritable delight of summery pop music on Plano, named after a small town outside of Chicago. The Aluminum Group’s sound is reminiscent of the cocktail lounge of Holiday and the Divine Comedy and the delicious hooks are on par with the brilliant Pale Fountains. “A Boy in Love” is one of the year’s most perfect pop songs, with an instantly memorable chorus, but then I could say that about almost any of these songs. Plano also features unusually strong lyrics about relationships that are both clever and tell compelling stories. This is complex, thinking-person’s pop music that no fan of the Beautiful South or the Divine Comedy should miss.
