June Gloom

This London-based lad and lady debuted as a drummerless duo on 2011's charmingly downcast Lights Out. Here they're a full band, splaying low-protein vocals over delicately crunchy hooks and tensile ballads. On "In Your Car," they mumble, "I want to be wherever you are/Asleep in the backseat/There's nothing more that I'll ever need." It's so cute you want to take them home and feed them soup.
