If you call any music old school, it truly sound like it´s dated but it can be done in such a way that it still feels contemporary. The two brothers Brad and Lesley Stoller from New York City blend 70´s soft rock with alternative piano pop and I do think it´s both old school and fresh.
Their new LP "Stationary sun" is a bit uneven but as an entirety, it really is a decent album where the vocal harmonies are the puzzle piece that stand out.
One of my favorite tracks is The Boomtown Rats-like "Culture war", what a cool and irresistable flirt with 70´s new wave and artrock in a big adorable mess.
Highlights : Loredana, Culture war
