On their 4-song EP, Circa, San Francisco duo Potion come at you with a wave of pure style. The title track swirls together a Stereolab-ish bounce, crisp acoustic guitar and Anne Maley's sultry pop vocals, plus whispering French voices in the background. All of the songs have a fresh, upbeat sound, somewhat retro in tone but full of life. Yet Potion aren't all about flair and sonic fashion; their songs have memorable melodies and heartfelt lyrics that tackle love and loneliness. Their style will catch your attention first, but underneath it lies solid songwriting and genuine emotion--Dave Heaton, Erasing Clouds

Beautiful lounge pop from the US. Potion, who count among their number the wonderfully named Michael Diaz de Bedoya, have here, four tracks of summery joy. Shame it's the middle of bastard winter, because the title track makes me want to go and order a 99 from the ice cream van, whilst 'Waves' has something of the Ladytron about it (yep, them again), but with that added jazz/lounge, languid vocal that Annie Maley seems to have to a tee. Beautiful stuff.--Sam Metcalf, Tasty

Potion's sound is compared to the B-52s, The Pretenders, and the Velvet Underground--a mix between 1980's electronic, 1960's Zombies-pop, and entre guerres Cabaret style. ... more
