When it comes to genre, Sondre Lerche is a Renaissance man: Moving from '80s style pop to garage rock and psych folk, he consistently delivers catchy melodies over straightforward guitar work that finds the perfect medium between under- and overwhelming. Whether it’s the golden hum of finger-picking or the haunting punctuation of synth, every song finds the right complement to a voice that, though boyish, demands to be taken seriously.
