Overview

Two years following the tragic demise of Lush, guitarist Emma Anderson formed the dream pop outfit Sing-Sing with vocalist Lisa O'Neill (Locust, Kid Loco) in 1998. The pairing couldn't have been more magical, for Sing-Sing presented a glowing dynamic. By fall 2002, American indie fans finally got their hands on the duo's debut album, The Joy of Sing-Sing; it had been previously released in Europe a year earlier, but the stateside release was worth the wait. The Joy of Sing-Sing showcases Anderson's signature vocal shimmer. O'Neill is a matchless partner for Anderson, as their melodies vocally intertwine to create sheer bliss. Sing-Sing engages in classic dreamlike aesthetics, but with a combination of '60s pop and electronic bits. There's a healthy ambience to this album, particularly on the airy dance blend of "Tegan." "Feels Like Summer" and "Me and My Friend" are pure, luxurious pop, while also warm for a daydream trip. Vibrant synth beats carry "Panda Eyes," while "You Don't Know" spirals around heavy keyboards like early-'80s new wave. Sing-Sing discovers its own musical universe on The Joy of Sing-Sing. Anderson has slightly stuck to the pop formula that made her an indie darling in the 1990s; however, she's designed it to be her very own. She and O'Neill are a sharp pair. The Joy of Sing-Sing is a divine first album -- fans will undoubtedly be delighted.
