I’ve  been on a severe Kinks kick as of late. So it’s not surprising that I’ve fallen in love with Princeton — an LA band similarly formed in part by brothers (in this case twins) Jesse and Matt Kivel. Princeton echoes soothing Washed Out beats, coupled with Biff Ross wit-romantic filled lyrics (‘Show Some Love, When Your Man Gets Home’), and the layered vocal harmonies of the Beach Boys. Calypso Gold, Princeton’s single, is a fine example of this mix with the added bonus of invoking LA’s fun-in-the-sun vibe anywhere you may be.
