Music Review: "Kiss Me by the Water Cooler" by Hero & Leander
This UK sextet's debut is filled with shiny, clever pop.
"Kiss Me by the Water Cooler"
From Hero & Leander's Tumble
Liner notes: "Kiss me while you dry your hair/Kiss me in your underwear," Emily Sills sings in this duet with bandmate Gary Cansell, channeling the exuberance of an old Broadway musical.
Behind the music: The UK sextet is named after a doomed romance from Greek mythology. But its shiny debut is more optimistic.
