Having already built a considerable buzz with their 2014 EP Reflections, New York trio MisterWives launch a full-bore pop assault on their debut LP Our Own House. With its shimmering synths and anthemic, feel-good chorus, "Hurricane" seems tailor-made for any number of rom-com finales or network TV show montages. Changing tack, but with equal amounts of gloss, the title cut is a low-key dancefloor jam with a smattering of '90s-style ska horns. Other tracks, like the chirpy, disco-inspired "Reflections" and the lush, indie folk-pop hymn "Vagabond" (both of which appeared on their earlier EP) show that MisterWives have a firm grasp on the zeitgeist and a rich understanding of modern pop song-building. But, while much of Our Own House might feel like a radio-ready romp through familiar contemporary styles, the band really does have a knack for putting hooks in the right places and delivering a strong, memorable chorus, making this an all-around pleasant debut. ~ Timothy Monger
