    They still manage to hit that sweet spot where they seem uncertain about everything, except the music they’re making--smart, charmingly relatable, and definitely evolving.

    It's a great combination of sound and songs that makes good on the promise the band showed on their debut, and shows them navigating the numerous pitfalls of growing up as a band in fine fashion.

    These are the hard-earned lessons of a band still tossed by youth, still fine-tuning both their chops and their compassion.

    Bolstered by Jones’ increased visibility and a newly varied instrumental palette, We’re Not Talking stands as proof that speak-singing still has some life left in it for a new generation of indie rockers.

    The Goon Sax are able to balance melancholy with the excitement of shedding adolescence through the perfect conduit: pop songs.
