CD Review: The Lashes


The Lashes
Get It
By David Chiu
Red Ink/Columbia

The thing that sets the Lashes apart from the other alt-rock bands is the number of personnel: there are six members in this group, including two guitarists and a keyboardist. Yet the music on the debut, Get It, for the most part is very streamlined power pop that could have been played by a trio. Comparisons to the Killers are inevitable, but the group has a very theatrical bent that borders on Queen and Ben Folds. This scruffy band delivers the hooks if not the looks, although Ben Clark is quite noticeable as a charismatic singer.
