No one, nobody, not much to speak of

This Is Photobomb
I initially dismissed the Luyas as being pretty but forgettable. Now that I’ve given their new album, Too Beautiful to Work, a proper listen, I’ve changed my mind. Yes, there are atmospheric moments that get a little directionless, but there’s also some good songwriting to sink your teeth into. Just check out the title track, “Too Beautiful to Work.” It begins with an angular keyboard motif that sounds a bit like a skipping CD before a the drums and vocals come in and transform it into a solid (if slightly skewed) pop tune.
