Album Review

Them Are Us Too – “Remain” – [Dais]

humana   5/28/2015   12-inch, A Library


This is the debut album of Bay Area band Them Are Us Too, made up of Kennedy Ashlyn Wenning and Cash Askew. Wenning’s voice is particularly lovely in “Marilyn,” where her ability to reach the high notes layers upon itself in a gorgeous way. This song is the only one where Askew joins her with his voice that strikes a British Invasion chord. The lyrics are printed on the insert and tell the stories of love, heartbreak, exhaustion, and angst, but it’s all done in such a fantastic way. Fairly melancholy, definitely shoegazey, and, as the insert claims, pop: “Remain” is a pop album. This music is the product of vulnerability and fragility that must be contained in the service of day to day survival. Each song is a container.”
