Indie pop folk. Or is it folky indiepop? Indie folk pop? The Weepies fit all three of these categories.
We can emphasis the pop, the indie, or the folk, and different songs on “Hideaway” will fit the appropriate accent. “Wish I Could Forget” is a great example of the band’s sound. It feels like it could be a Gordon Lightfoot or America song, at home on ‘70s AM Radio, what with it’s gentle guitar line and lovely harmonies, but it’s also got some 2000s twee to it. This is largely cheerful, simple music, which is (and has been) at home in the background of network TV family dramas, but then, so was Peter Bjorn and John. (The Weepies songs have appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs, The Riches, How I Met Your Mother, and many more.)
The title track is the single, and it’s catchy as hell.
