The single for Cinderpop’s newest album has been floating around for quite some time, but I hadn’t really given it too much of a listen until I started spinning Manic Sparkles repeatedly on my player. It’s an album that’s chock-full of wonderful pop tunes that recall all sorts of influences, from the Lucksmiths to Sloan to Nada Surf. These are the sorts of influences that make me swoon, so I’m happy to have re-discovered the band and their classic pop sound. I feel like more people should be writing music like this, but if they’re not, I’ve always got great bands like this to enjoy.
