Formerly known as Oregon Bike Trails, this band led by vocalist and songwriter Zach Yudin are purveyors of a sprightly and melodious brand of indie pop, conveying a summery lilt that makes this album's title somewhat apposite. Spiralling hi-life guitars, bittersweet vocals and expansive arrangements are duty-bound to produce comparisons with Vampire Weekend, yet Yudin has a voice all his own, somewhat country-tinged in delivery just as it is lyrically arch. Thus. 'Dancing At The Blue Lagoon' arrives at a sound as redolent of the tart songsmithery of Steven Malkmus as the resigned melancholy of Ryan Adams, with piano and string flourishes contributing to a rich tapestry of sound.
