POBPAH are not messing around on their new record, Belong. Cashing in on the success of their debut record, they brought in big time producer Flood to make them sound as huge as their 90's alt-rock heroes. What seems like a recipe for disaster for an indie-pop band is, instead, an ambitious and masterful move.
POBPAH did not abandon their strength for writing engaging shoe-gazing indie-pop, instead they've enhanced their sound with major league production that bolsters their prodigious talent instead of ruining their erstwhile charms. The end result harkens back to the heyday of alt-rock before the word "alt-rcok" was a dirty word – when it seemed like great bands were finally receiving mass acceptance without pandering. You could sneak many of the songs on Belong onto a 90's mix tape, and most people wouldn't bat an eye at it.
