Review: Birds and Arrows, Starmaker

Birds and Arrows

Pete and Andrea Connolly combine to form the duo of Birds and Arrows, offering a interesting folksy indie pop album in Starmaker that is in the very least worth one listen the next time you are hoping to escape the stressors of everyday life.  The debut album from this husband and wife duo oozes with an obvious vibe that these two are comfortable singing together and have something special.  They are at times brilliant in songs such as “Honeymoon Song” and “Not Interested”, however other songs fail to click so nicely, especially toward the end of the album.  While Starmaker may not blow you away it undoubtedly provides a pleasant listen for anyone looking to relax with a folk-indie sound.
