This Melbourne, Australia quartet has a feel for the glossy harmonies of the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Everly Brothers, but with a '90s sensibility. The sitar hook on "Get Set," for example, shares more kinship with Kula Shaker than George Harrison, but the song's four-part harmonies are every bit as Beatlesque. With production by Jack Joseph Puig (Goo Goo Dolls, Semisonic), Imaginate is a slick record with rough edges being smoothed by strings, softly distorted guitars, and Bacharach-style horn sections -- a true bid for pop radio.
