Smooth jazz, yacht rock and Roxy Music meet at the crossroads of irony and sincerity. Easy to listen to, but impossible to categorize.
Seattle based Pleasures are fond of mixing ’80s sounds with noughties irony. Smooth saxophones and featherweight guitar jangles bring to mind Christopher Cross’ yacht rock and Avalon-era Roxy Music. But vocalist Aron Pollard’s eccentric falsetto and odd phrasing take Pleasures out of that decade: They’re off-key, out of sync—and so on point for now.
